The ECR Group welcomes Michiel Hoogeveen as a new member

Dutch MEP Michiel Hoogeveen has joined the European Conservatives and Reformists Group.

Mr Hoogeveen has taken the place of Derk Jan Eppink in the European Parliament. Mr Eppink has since occupied a seat in the Dutch national Parliament after being elected on behalf of the newly established JA21 party at the national parliamentary elections in March 2021.

Mr Hoogeveen is also a member of the provincial council of South-Holland, Netherlands for JA21, where he focuses on EU and international affairs and cultural heritage.

Mr Hoogeveen comments:

“I want to thank the ECR Group for the warm welcome, and I look forward to working with them towards a European Union that will respect the sovereignty of national governments.

“The EU needs a reality check. I believe the European Conservatives and Reformists Group can spearhead a fundamental reform of the EU, and I feel privileged to be part of their mission.”

The ECR Group now holds 63 seats in the European Parliament. As a centre-right political group, the ECR Group is the voice of the sensible middle-way between “more Europe” and “no Europe”. For the ECR Group, it is time to rebuild the EU as a community of sovereign European states – a Europe of mutual respect, cooperation and solidarity.
