Maltese for Europe
Maltese for Europe

Centre-right Maltese lawmaker Roberta Metsola, chosen Tuesday as only the third woman to head the European Parliament, is viewed as a political moderate despite controversy over her anti-abortion stance. Elected on the day she turns 43, the politician from the European Union's smallest nation becomes the youngest president ever to run the chamber.She takes over at a time of mourning for the legislature as it marks the sudden death last week of its speaker David Sassoli.Metsola, a member of the biggest parliamentary bloc, the European People's Party, was already the frontrunner to replace the center-left Italian parliament chief under a deal struck by the main political groupings.She is no stranger to the EU's byzantine corridors of power after serving as Sassoli's top vice president of the chamber."I think we have a convincing candidate: young, female, from a small country," Manfred Weber, the EPP's parliamentary chief, said.Metsola's career has been intertwined with her Mediterranean homeland's membership of the EU -- and her rise to a job usually dominated by lawmakers from bigger powers could help shine the spotlight on often overlooked countries.As a student, she campaigned for the successful "Yes" vote when Malta decided to join the EU in 2003. She then headed to the elite College of Europe in Bruges that turned out Eurocrats, and went on to work in Brussels.She was eventually elected as an MEP on her third try, in 2013, on the ticket of Malta's Nationalist Party."It took me almost 10 years to become a member of the European Parliament. I could have given up," the mother of four sons wrote. MEPs had been expected to elect Metsola as president despite her anti-abortion stanceBut Metsola has insisted she would put her personal stance to one side and represent the majority view of the parliament as president. "On sexual and reproductive health and rights, the position of the European Parliament is clear," Metsola told the newspaper Malta Today."As president of the Parliament my duty is to represent the view of the Parliament and if I am elected, I will do my duty as I have always done."(AFP)SourceWires,News. โ€œFrance 24.โ€ France 24, www.france24.com, 18 January. 2022, https://www.france24.com/en/news-wires.

The 2022's Top 8 Universities in Portugal

We believe that the most important tool you can receive to ensure your success in today's local and global society is a higher education from a reputable university. Education lessens the challenges you will face in life. The more knowledge you gain, the more opportunities for individuals to advance their careers and personal growth will become available. Higher education in Portugal is aligned with that of the rest of Europe, with Portuguese Bachelor's, Master's, and Doctorates being equivalent across the continent. Portugal, like the rest of the world, distinguishes between research-oriented universities and more practice-oriented polytechnics. The majority of courses are taught in Portuguese, but an increasing number of courses are taught in English, particularly at the Master's level. Here are the top 8 Universities of 2022 in Portugal, Based on The World University Ranking. Statistic Source 1.
