The European People’s Party (EPP) Political Assembly (PA) met in Brussels on 9-10 September to discuss political developments in member states, the incoming European Commission, priorities for the current European Parliament mandate and preparations for the upcoming EPP Congress in Zagreb.

EPP’s political family continues to grow. The members of the PA welcomed SPOLU, who will reinforce the centre-right in Slovakia and defend our values in the country.

Regarding EPP membership from outside the European Union, the Bosniak Party of Montenegro has joined as Associate Member Party and European Solidarity from Ukraine as Observer Member Party.
