Antoine Ripoll, Head of European Parliament Liaison Office in Washington, DC, made a presentation to TABC members on the European elections and their possible impact on U.S.-EU Relations, addressing questions such as: What will the new European Parliament look like? How are its main political caucuses organised, and what are the party ratios between extremes/mainstream? What will change in the EU decision-making process, and what appears to be stable? What is on the agenda of the only EU Institution that directly represents the European taxpayers? Finally, how will the new European Parliament work on the TTIP and data flows, surveillance and energy?
