11 Vice-Presidents still have to be elected in a third round, all candidates will run again in the third round, where a simple majority is required.

Role of Vice-Presidents

Vice-Presidents are Members of the European Parliament Bureau.  The Bureau is the body that lays down rules for Parliament. It draws up Parliament’s preliminary draft budget and decides administrative, staff and organisational matters.

The Bureau consists of the President of the European Parliament, the 14 Vice-Presidents and the five Quaestors elected by Parliament for a period of two and a half years (which can be renewed).
