Written by Giulio Sabbati,
Within the European Parliament, Members (MEPs) sit in political groups, whose members come from several countries and come together on the basis of political affinity. Our table shows the number of MEPs in each political group in the European Parliament, broken down by Member State, as well as the non-attached (NI) Members who are not in any group.
At the moment, there are seven political groups in the Parliament, and many of those were also present in the last term:
EPP – Group of the European People’s Party (Christian Democrats)
S&D – Group of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats in the European Parliament
Renew Europe Group
Greens/EFA – Group of the Greens/European Free Alliance
ID – Identity and Democracy Group
ECR – European Conservatives and Reformists Group
GUE/NGL – Confederal Group of the European United Left – Nordic Green Left
The figures are supplied by our colleagues from the Members’ Administration Unit. Please note that these figures are subject to change and as a result we will update this table periodically throughout the five years of the current parliamentary term
