European Parliament: Vice-presidents and Quaestors elected

All 14 European Parliament Vice-Presidents were elected in the third round with a simple majority of the valid votes cast. Notably, Edward McMillan-Scott (ALDE, UK) was re-elected Vice-President.  Likewise, 5 Quaestors, who will deal with administrative matters directly affecting MEPs themselves, have been elected.
The Vice-presidents elected are: Gianni PITTELLA (S&D, IT), Miguel Angel MARTÍNEZ MARTÍNEZ (S&D, ES), Anni PODIMATA (S&D, EL), Alejo VIDAL-QUADRAS (EPP, ES), Georgios PAPASTAMKOS (EPP,EL), Roberta ANGELILLI (EPP,IT), Othmar KARAS (EPP, AT), Edward McMILLAN-SCOTT (ALDE, UK), Isabelle DURANT (Green/EFA, BE), Alexander ALVARO (ALDE, DE), Rainer WIELAND (EPP, DE), Oldřich VLASÁK (ECR, CZ), Jacek PROTASIEWICZ (EPP, PL), László SURJÁN (EPP, HU)
The new 14 Vice-Presidents will be Members of the European Parliament Bureau. The Bureau is the body that lays down rules for Parliament. It draws up Parliament’s preliminary draft budget and decides administrative, staff and organisational matters.
Quaestors were elected in the third ballot by simple majority of the votes. They are: Astrid LULLING (EPP, LU), Lidia GERINGER DE OEDENBERG (S&D, PL), Bogusław LIBERADZKI (S&D, PL), Jiří MAŠTÁLKA (GUE/NGL, CZ), Jim HIGGINS (EPP, IE). The Quaestors are members of the Bureau in an advisory capacity.
