The European Parliament and its Political Groups

On 9 June 2024, elections to the European Parliament will take place in Portugal. These elections, which take place every five years, allow portuguese citizens to elect the members – also known as “MEPs” – who will represent them in the European Parliament during the 2024-2029 term. Voting allows citizens to influence the direction of the Union's response to the global challenges it faces.

Given the undeniable importance of these elections, Cruz Vilaça Advogados will be publishing a series of newsletters on the subject until June to help understanding what the European elections are and what they represent. This first newsletter looks at the role of the European Parliament, its constitution, its functions and how the institution is organised.
