European People's Party in the European Parliament
The Group of the European People's Party (EPP Group) is the largest and oldest group in the European Parliament. Our roots reach back to Europe’s Founding Fathers – Robert Schuman, Alcide De Gasperi and Konrad Adenauer – and our Members come from all of Europe’s Member States.
Like all Members of the European Parliament (MEPs), EPP Group Members are elected locally by voters in their Member State to represent local people’s interests on legislative and policy issues at the European level.
Members of the European Parliament are organised by political affiliation rather than country and may only belong to at most one political group. The EPP Group is the largest of the European Parliament’s eight political groups.
The Members you elected are there to represent your national interest at a European level, guided by the overall position of the EPP Group.
