After a first plenary session and a series committee meetings in early July 2014, key positions were distributed in the European Parliament.
The European Parliament’s 22 committees held their first meeting on Monday (7 July). On the agenda was the election of committee chairs and vice-chairs.
The week before, MEPs gathered for the Parliament’s first plenary session in Strasbourg, and elected a president, vice-presidents and quaestors. They also appointed the leader(s) of their faction.
The final leading positions were settled after one Vice-President, Corina Cretu, was selected to take up a Commissioner role in Jean-Claude Juncker’s EU executive team.
