A majority in the EU Parliament will abolish the annual change from summer to winter time. But the process is on ice.
on Sunday morning, many danes have stolen an hour of their beauty sleep.
at the same time, the north rejoice that the sun goes down an hour later than it has done in the course of the past six years.
It is not good enough: It has been daylight saving time, and clocks should be one hour forward.
however, It may soon be a thing of the past, that the hands must be moved forward and back on a semi-annual basis.
IN the EU Parliament, there is majority support for summer and winter time is passé, and instead must go over to a tidssystem with one firm helårstid in the EU countries.
According to the plan, the clocks in the EU are diverted for the last time in 2021.
Nothing, however, suggest that it will not be the case.
In the course of the past year there has been tangible progress in the negotiations between the EU-countries, which is the next step to abolish summer and winter time.
This is because member states have not agreed on a common position, which tidssystem to replace the current.
It says Marianne Wind, member of the EUROPEAN Parliament for the Social democratic party.
She does not believe that the legislation will be done in time to abolish daylight saving time in 2021.
Especially not now, where coronavirusset has affected all the agendas in the european UNION, and the abolition of daylight saving time therefore is downsized.
– It does not seem to be quite many big hands. I have a hard time to see when it will be resumed.
– I will not be surprised if the will be drawn one day, so it is not on the table anymore, says Marianne Wind.
IN the EU negotiations, it is often possible to reach a compromise. But it is not possible in this context, where it must choose between one of several systems.
Therefore, it suggests that the watches must also be made back and forth after the year 2021.
Søren Gade, member of the EUROPEAN Parliament for the Left, hope that countries can find a common position, so that there occurs a tidskaos across the EU’s internal borders.
– exactly with it, it could be nice if you took a similar decision in Europe about whether we should have daylight saving time or not, he says.
