The European Parliament 2019 – 2024: Key Committee Composition

This note looks at the composition of major Committees in the European Parliament, and what the power dynamics will be.

After several marathon sessions, the European Council agreed on the line-up for the EU “top jobs” on 2 July 2019. The deal, which notably saw German Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen (CDU, EPP) surprisingly designated as the next European Commission (EC) President, meant that the European Parliament (EP) could proceed with the election of its own leadership on 3 July.

NOVE’s note takes a look at this new roster and outlines the 10 Committees most important to business in Europe, describing their composition, internal dynamics, political balance and leadership – and MEPs to watch!
