European Parliament

— filed under: ,

The European Parliament (EP) is composed of 626 members, directly elected to five-year terms. Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) form political rather than national groups. The European Parliament now has a limited legislative role thanks to the co-decision procedure introduced by the Maastricht Treaty. The Parliament acts as the EU's public forum, debating issues of public importance and questioning the Commission and the Council. The Parliament can amend or reject the EU budget.
