Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
French MEP Valérie Hayer elected president of liberal group Renew Europe | EuroNews - 25 Jan 2024 |

Hayer, a Member of the European Parliament (MEP) from Emmanuel Macron's Renaissance party, becomes the youngest person to lead the liberal group in the European Parliament at 37.

The position was left vacant earlier this month after Stéphane Séjourné was named Minister of Foreign Affairs in Emmanuel Macron's government. Hayer was the only candidate for the role and was elected by acclamation.

Malik Azmani, a Dutch MEP and the Renew whip, was widely rumoured to be lined up for the role but did not put his name forward. His Dutch liberal VVD party are currently in delicate coalition talks in the Netherlands after Geert Wilders' far-right populist Party for Freedom's shock victory in November's Dutch election.
