Dacian Ciolos Plans Bid for Renew Europe Group Leadership – Sources

The current co-leader of the 2020 USR-PLUS Alliance "could play an important role" after French MEP Nathalie Loiseau withdrew plans for a candidacy to lead the European Parliament group, ALDE member Jean Arthuis said in a Twitter post.

Earlier this week, the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE) announced that its European Parliament group, which will consist of an alliance with the French President Emmanuel Macron's En Marche party and USR-PLUS, will be rebranded as Renew Europe for new European legislature.

The centrist group registered the largest gain out of all European Parliament groups in the latest EU elections, gaining 41 seats more than at the 2014 elecions.

Dacian Ciolos was prime minister of Romania between November 2015 and December 2016, having previously served as EU Commissioner for Agriculture between 2010 and 2014.
