The new group aims to bring change to the European Union’s politics, Gal said after the group’s inaugural session.

Gal, who has been appointed the group’s first vice-president, said Patriots for Europe was now the EP’s third biggest group and the “biggest patriotic group” ever to have existed in the legislative body.

Patriots for Europe comprises 30 MEPs from France’s National Rally (Rassemblement National, RN), 11 from Fidesz, 7 from Czechia’s ANO and 2 from Oath and Motorists for Themselves, 6 from Austria’s Freedom Party (FPO), 3 from Belgium’s Flemish Interest (Vlaams Belang), 8 from Italy’s Lega party, 6 from the Netherlands’ Party for Freedom (PVV), 6 from Spain’s VOX party, 2 from Portugal’s Chega and one MEP each from Denmark’s Danish People’s Party, Greece’s Voice of Reason, and Latvia First.

The group has appointed RN leader Jordan Bardella as its president and Gal its first vice-president. Its other vice-presidents are Roberto Vannaci (Lega), Klara Dostalova (ANO), Sebastien Stoteler (PVV) and Anders Vistisen (Danish People’s Party).
