On Tuesday 25 April, ECON Members voted on the nominee - Pervenche Berès - for the position of EP representative within the European Statistical Advisory Committee (ESAC). The vote results are: 43 in favour, 3 against and 0 abstentions.

By Decision No 234/2008/EC of 11 March 2008, the European Parliament and the Council established the ESAC. In line with Article 4 (1) (b) (i) of the Decision, the European Parliament directly appoints one member representing it in the Committee, for a 5-year term. As the term of the previous member representing the European Parliament, Werner Langen, came to an end on 31 March 2023, a new EP representative needs to be appointed.
