Room SPINELLI 3G3 – Brussels

"Permanent System for the allocation of seats in the European Parliament" Organized by the Policy Department for Citizens' Rights and Constitutional Affairs for the Committee on Constitutional Affairs (AFCO)

On Wednesday 14 February 2024 from 10:00 to 12:00, AFCO Chair Salvatore de Meo moderated a workshop related to the file on a permanent system for the allocation seats in the European Parliament, Co-Rapporteurs, Ana COLLADO JIMÉNEZ and Niklas NIENAß.

Over the years, the European Parliament has recognized the importance of a permanent system for the allocation of seats which must follow the general provisions of Article 14 of the Treaty on European Union (TEU). However, a permanent system has not yet been established. This workshop was intended to examine and discuss proposals by mathematicians and experts in the field, to seek a fair, objective and transparent mechanism for seat allocation to be used before each new European election.
