English term or phrase: across the parties
I do not, however, want to forget either the enormous contribution made by Commissioner Verheugen in the negotiations that led to the success of enlargement. Many sceptics along the way must have aroused justified anger in you. Perseverance, however, was rewarded with success, and I think Parliament should acknowledge that **across the parties**.

I read it as "all the parties comprised in Parliament should acknowledge that". Is that right?
