The new vice-president of the European Parliament, Marc Angel, has replaced Greek MP Eva Kayli, who was caught up in European Parliament-related corruption investigations and removed as vice-president of the European Parliament.
An election has been held at a session of the European Parliament’s General Assembly in Strasbourg, France, to choose one of the 14 Vice-Presidents of the European Parliament vacated after Kylie.
Marc Angel of Luxembourg, a member of the Alliance of Socialists and Democrats, won the election with 307 out of 590 valid votes.
Thus, for the first time since 1984, a parliamentarian from Luxembourg became Vice-President of the European Parliament. Engel entered parliament in 2019 and studied translation, philosophy and tourism.
One of the European Parliament’s former vice-presidents, Eva Kayley, was arrested last month in a corruption investigation in Belgium, after which her vice-president’s position was terminated.
