Parliament group priorities: Renew Europe group

Renew Europe (RE), a new political group, is the third largest one in the current European Parliament.

During the European elections in May, about 200 million Europeans elected MEPs to represent them over the coming five years in the new European Parliament. Those MEPs are organised into groups based on their political affinities. Find out about the priorities of each group in our video series.

The liberal-centrist Renew Europe was created in the current, ninth term of the Parliament, as the successor to the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE). The new group holds 108 seats in Parliament, making it the third largest group. Its members represent 22 EU countries.

Dacian Cioloș, a former Romanian Prime Minister, was elected president of the group in June 2019. This is his first term as an MEP. The group also has eight vice-presidents. 

This pro-EU group says it is strongly focused on addressing people's needs and finding EU solutions to European problems.

Two out of 14 vice-presidents of the European Parliament are members of RE, as are three out of 20 chairs of the parliamentary committees.
