3. Composition of Parliament

Ulla Tørnæs has been appointed to a post in the Danish Government.

Since, pursuant to Article 7(1) of the Act of 20 September 1976 concerning the election of the members of the European Parliament by direct universal suffrage, this office was incompatible with that of Member of the European Parliament, Parliament established under Rule 4(4) of its Rules of Procedure that the vacancy would take effect from 29 February 2016 and informed the Member State concerned thereof.

The Danish authorities had given notice of the election of Morten Løkkegaard to replace Ulla Tørnæs as Member of Parliament with effect from 3 March 2016.

Under Rule 3(2), until such time as his credentials had been verified or a ruling had been given on any dispute, and provided that he had previously made a written declaration stating that he did not hold any office incompatible with that of Member of the European Parliament, Morten Løkkegaard would take his seat in Parliament and on its bodies and would enjoy all the rights attaching thereto.
