Following the election of the President, MEPs will choose 14 Vice-Presidents in a secret vote on Wednesday. Candidates need to win the absolute majority of valid votes cast in the first or second ballots to be elected. In the third round, the best-scoring candidates will take up the remaining seats. The election of Vice-Presidents starts at 9.00.
