- Vice President of the European Parliament
There are fourteen "Vice Presidents of the European Parliament" who are elected following the election of the
President of the European Parliament(which currently takes place every two years, though is only required every four). Candidates tend to be unopposed as the positions are divided between the parties by agreement beforehand.
Vice Presidents are members of the Bureau and chair the plenary when the President is not in the chair. The President may also delegate any duty, task or power to one of the Vice-Presidents. For the current vice presidents, see the latest election results below.
