The order of precedence of Vice-Presidents reflects the scores achieved by the 14 best scoring candidates. MEPs will have as many votes to cast as there are places to be filled. To cast a valid vote in the first round, MEPs have to vote for at least 8 candidates, i.e. half plus one.

Parliament’s five Quaestors will be elected on Wednesday afternoon.
