Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Assuming you ask about my "top four positions", then on the one stanley doesn't mention, its own President, a position to be renewed after the 2009 EP elections, too. (Current incumbent: Hans Pöttering/EPP/CDU.)

I haven't checked out what exactly the EP will be able to do under Lisbon with the Commission President named by the Council.

Oh, and could the EP cease this absurdity of sharing its president's position between PSE and EPP ? This is a political assembly, and bipartisanship doesn't help making European politics any more understandable, and probably weakens the parliament.
