2024 European elections - 6 to 9 June 2024

Citizens in the EU Member States elected their representatives to the European Parliament during the European elections of 6 to 9 June. The newly elected Members, representing EU citizens until 2029, will meet in July to elect their President, Vice-Presidents and Quaestors. They will decide on the composition of Parliament's standing and sub committees - thereby launching the new legislative term. The committees will then hold their first meetings to elect their respective Chairs and Vice-Chairs.

The Committee on Budgets will host Johannes Hahn, Commissioner for Budget and Administration, on 19 June. Mr Hahn will present the Commission's Draft Budget for the year 2025 to the outgoing Members of the Committee, thereby launching the annual budgetary procedure. Next, the Council will adopt its position on the Draft Budget, to which Parliament will respond. The conciliation period will take place in autumn with a view to finding a compromise and adopt the final budget by the end of the year.

Parliament's committees deal with EU legislative proposals by adopting reports, which then are referred to plenary for voting by all Members, and appoint negotiation teams to conduct talks with Council. They adopt non-legislative reports, organise hearings with experts and scrutinise other EU bodies and institutions. Parliament can set up sub-committees and special committees to deal with specific issues. Each committee elects a chair and up to four vice-chairs for a two and a half year mandate.
