Dear MEL Topic Readers,

What does the European Parliament actually do? One clue lies in your phone bill

The ninth election to the European Parliament ended on May 26 and elected 751 members of the parliament, who represent over 500 million citizens of the 28 member states. The election results seem polarized, while pro-EU liberal and far-right parties gained their presence, the center-left and center-right parties lost their seats.

But how much do you know about the parliament? What roles do they actually play in the EU? What are the other two pillars of the union, the European Commission and the Council of European Union do? What “groups” are there in the parliament and what are the relations and correlations with the political parties of their respective states? How high the voting turnout by election and by country?

By the way, when the United Kingdom depart from the union, their representatives will also retire their seats, which makes the total number of the seats to 705, unless a new member state has joined by then.

Enjoy reading the article and learn about this significant but vague function of the EU.
