Parliament noted their election.

Under Rule 3(2), until such time as their credentials had been verified or a ruling had been given on any dispute, and provided that they had previously made written declarations stating that they did not hold any office incompatible with that of Member of the European Parliament, Sunčana Glavak, Gheorghe-Vlad Nistor and Marc Angel would take their seats in Parliament and on its bodies and would enjoy all the rights attaching thereto.
