The Conference of Presidents

The Conference of Presidents is the political body in Parliament responsible for
the organisation of Parliament’s business and legislative planning
deciding the responsibilities and membership of committees and delegations
relations with other EU institutions, the national parliaments and non-EU countries.
The Conference of Presidents prepares Parliament’s timetable and plenary sitting agendas and allocates seats in the Chamber.

Conference of Presidents: membership

The Conference of Presidents consists of the President of Parliament and the political group chairmen.
One representative of the non-attached Members also has a seat in the Conference of Presidents but no voting rights.
The Conference of Presidents takes its decisions by consensus or by weighted vote based on the number of Members in each political group.
