Composition of EP interparliamentary delegations  

MEPs will vote on how many MEPs should sit in each interparliamentary delegation on Wednesday at 12.00, with appointments announced at 19.00 on the same day.

The European Parliament’s interparliamentary delegations maintain relations and exchange information with parliamentarians in other countries, regions and organisations to promote the EU’s core values: liberty, democracy, respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms, and the rule of law.

MEPs vote to set up standing interparliamentary delegations based on a proposal by the Conference of Presidents (EP President and political group leaders), deciding on their nature and the number of members in each delegation. Political groups and non-attached Members decide on the nominations. They need to ensure that member states, political views and gender are fairly represented.

Vote: Wednesday, 17 July at 12.00

Appointments: Wednesday, 17 July at 19.00

Procedure: Numerical strength of interparliamentary delegations, 2019/2719(RSO)
