Rules on the composition of committees

According to Parliament’s Rules of Procedure (Rule 209), the composition of its committees and subcommittees should as far as possible reflect the composition of Parliament as a whole.

The political groups and non-attached Members decide internally who is appointed to each committee and subcommittee.
