Rules on political groups and non-attached Members

26-06-2014

Members of the European Parliament may form political groups. These are not organised by nationality, but by political affiliation. At the start of the new parliamentary term there are set to be seven political groups in the Parliament, as there were in the 2009-14 period. Members (MEPs) not belonging to any political group are known as 'non-attached' (non-inscrits) Members.
