ECR Group

Dear visitors,

Since our foundation in 2009, we have been working hard towards an EU that gets back to basics to deliver common sense solutions. We believe that at the heart of every decision made by the EU, should be the consideration of whether or not it is adding value for hard-working taxpayers across the union.

To achieve this, ECR MEPs continue to focus their efforts on decentralisation, connecting people and business, promoting open, fair and free trade, and fostering a safe & secure Europe, among many other achievements.

Our efforts have delivered results improving the lives of citizens across the EU every day. As we inch closer towards European elections next year, we will continue to promote a wider agenda of long-term pan-European euro-realist reform. We will continue our hard work in securing a more flexible, open, and economically vibrant EU offering citizens and taxpayers tangible benefits.

With your support and the continued efforts of our MEPs, we believe that an EU that respects the wishes of its citizens, spends taxpayers’ money responsibly, and respects the sovereignty of its national governments, is an EU that can build a stronger future which better serves its citizens.

Yours sincerely,

Syed Kamall & Ryszard Legutko
Co-Chairmen of the ECR Group in the European Parliament

ECR
We are the 3rd LARGEST POLITICAL GROUP in the European Parliament

The ECR Group is a centre-right political group in the European Parliament, founded in 2009 with a common cause to reform the EU on the basis of euro-realism, respecting the sovereignty of nations, and focusing on economic recovery, growth and competitiveness. From its 8 founding Member States with 54 MEPs in 2009, we have now grown to become the third largest group in the European Parliament with over 70 members from 19 EU countries hailing from 26 different political parties.

EUROREALISTS, not anti-European

Euro-realism is the driving force of the ECR Group, which distinguishes our agenda from the other political groups in the European Parliament. The European Union needs a new direction. Some argue that the solution is more Europe, others that the solution is no Europe. We offer a bold alternative vision of a reformed European Union as a community of nations cooperating in areas where they have some common interests that can best be advanced by working together.

We are the voice of COMMON SENSE

The European Union has overreached. It has become too centralised, too ambitious, and too out of touch with ordinary citizens. We believe in restoring common sense in Brussels - advocating for the equal treatment of all Member States, pushing the EU to be more fiscally responsible, finding new ways to connect people and business, creating solutions to the migrant crisis and the terrorist threat, and adopting a global approach to increase EU competitiveness on the world stage.

ALTERNATIVE AGENDA for the EU

The ECR Group is at the forefront of generating forward-looking policy proposals to design a reformed European Union that is more flexible, decentralised and respects the wishes of its Member States. Only an EU that truly listens to its people can offer real solutions to the problems we face today. We believe in cutting red tape, in an EU run by national governments not Brussels bureaucrats, in doing less but better, in an immigration system that works, in spending taxpayer money wisely, but most of all, we believe in fostering an EU that is safe, secure, competitive and prosperous for all.
