The European United Left/Nordic Green Left (GUE / NGL) decided to propose again the head of SYRIZA, Dimitris Papadimoulis, for the position of the European Parliament Vice President.

The tenure of the vice president is 2.5 years. The election will take place on January 17 with the participation of 751 MEPs representing the 28 member states.

Papadimoulis earlier on Wednesday posted on Twitter: “77 out of the 80 prior actions of the second programme review have been met. The other 3 are doable. Thomsen is playing games. It is the time of the leaders.”
