Members of the European People’s Party (EPP) gathered in Brussels on 24-25 June. Chaired by EPP President Manfred Weber and EPP Secretary General Thanasis Bakolas, delegates exchanged views on the outcome of the 2024 European Parliament elections, at both European and national levels.

Special interventions were made by the President of the European Commission and EPP Lead Candidate, Ursula von der Leyen, and the President of the European Parliament, Roberta Metsola.

President von der Leyen spoke of the challenges the EU faces, highlighting the need to focus on security, prosperity and protection of the rule of law. President Metsola spoke of how these elections show that voters continue to look to the EPP for solutions.

In a secret ballot, delegates elected François-Xavier Bellamy (Les Républicains/FR) as EPP Treasurer.

Following a decision of the EPP Presidency, the next EPP Statutory Congress will be co-hosted by Partido Popular in Valencia, Spain in 2025.
