Our table shows the number of MEPs in each group, broken down by Member State, as well as the non-attached (NI) Members not in any group. The figures are supplied by our colleagues from the Members’ Administration Unit. This infographic updates an earlier edition, of 3 May 2017.

Please note that these figures, supplied by our colleagues from the Public Opinion Monitoring Unit at DG Communication, are subject to change.

  • Last time Germany had 99 MEP. The discrimination of German citizens continues, not only are Germans underrepresented, each time a new member state joins the Germans get even less votes.

  • Neither the infographic nor this page explaining it decodes what “EPP” “S&D” “ECR” etc. actually mean, making this useless to the layperson.

    In trying to engage the public in an inclusive understanding of European politics, you’ve failed at the very first hurdle.

    I can’t even see a link to find this secret information I’m supposed to know. A simple key or sentence would suffice and open the doors to a much wider audience of potentially-politically-active readers.

    • Thank you for your very valuable comment. As you can see we have updated the post but you can also check the following list:
      EPP – Group of the European People’s Party (Christian Democrats)
      S&D – Group of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats in the EP
      ECR – European Conservatives and Reformists Group
      ALDE – Group of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe
      GUE/NGL – Confederal Group of the European United Left–Nordic Green Left
      Greens/EFA – Group of the Greens–European Free Alliance
      EFDD – Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy
      NI – Non-Inscrits
