Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

The President of the European Parliament carries out the role of speaker in parliament and represents it externally. The president and vice presidents are elected by MEPs in a secret ballot every two and a half years.

Conference of Presidents
The President, the Chairmen of Political groups, along with independent representatives without voting rights, form the Conference of Presidents. It organizes all work of the Parliament and parliamentary bodies. The Conference can be questioned by any MEP.

Conference decisions are by consensus or a weighted vote based on the number of MEPs in a political group. It meets fortnightly, in camera. But minutes are distributed to all members.
