MEP David Casa will form part of the European Parliament’s leadership following an election that took place this morning in Strasbourg where he was elected European Parliament Quaestor.
David Casa stated: “I am honoured to have been entrusted to take on this role. This is now my fourth parliamentary term and I am ready for the increased responsibility that comes with forming part of the Parliament’s Bureau. My election is also testament to the fact that despite coming from a small member state, Maltese nationals can achieve positions of significant clout within European institutions.”
The Quaestors are elected for two and a half year terms and are responsible for different aspects of the Parliament’s administration such as Parliament’s communication setup.
David Casa will form part of the European Parliament’s Bureau together with the President and Vice Presidents. He now holds the highest ranking European Parliament post secured by a Maltese MEP.
This role comes after a number of important role which David Casa has served in during the past legislatures, namely EPP Group Coordinator for the Employment and Social Affairs Committee, as well as Parliament’s lead negotiator on one of the most ground-breaking directives adopted just a few months ago: the Work Life Balance Directive. ”I am determined to continue working with even more energy to achieve concrete results for Maltese and European citizens”.
MEP Casa thanked colleague MEP Roberta Metsola for her support.
The EPP Group is the largest political group in the European Parliament with 182 Members from 26 Member States
