Members of the European Parliament
MEPs do not sit in national delegations in the Parliament, but in multinational political groups. The centre-right European Peoples Party (EPP-ED) and European Democrats, which includes two Maltese members from the Nationalist Party (PN), is the largest political group. Three Maltese members of Labour Party (PL)belong to the Party of European Socialists (PES), the second largest group.
The European Liberal Group is third biggest, closely followed by the Green / European Free Alliance which has brought together Green MEPs from 11 countries.
Other groups are The Europe of Democracies and Diversities Group, the European United Left / Nordic Green Left, which brings together Left and Green members from a number of countries including France, Greece and Italy; and the Union for Europe of the Nations.
