The Renew Europe Group today announces its new governance structure, following the election of Stéphane Séjourné MEP as the new President of the Group, which now comprises 100 MEPs, from 23 EU Member States.

The new Presidency of the Group, which fully respects parity, is comprised of a President, a First Vice-President and 13 Members, each appointed a portfolio, aimed at expanding the group and maximising our pan-European and parliamentary impact ahead of the 2024 European elections. Task forces and delegates have also been appointed on structural aspects towards 2024 and thematic priorities, in line with Renew Europe’s Paris Declaration.

Stéphane Séjourné, President of Renew Europe said:

“We have in place a gender balanced team of all the talents, prepared and capable to reinvent the European Union. For Renew Europe, the 2024 European election campaign is a permanent campaign.”

“Our intention is to build a strong alliance of pro-European, liberal, democrat and progressive parties willing to defend and enhance liberal democracy and European integration. We are the European movement that will stand up to the populists and nationalists determined to weaken Europe and erode the rights and opportunities of citizens.”
