The Conference of Presidents is made up of the chairs of the political groups and the President of the European Parliament. It organises the practical aspects of Parliament’s work and decides on all questions related to legislative planning, including:
- the timetable and agenda for plenary sittings
- the composition of committees and delegations and their remits
- legislative programming.
It also has an important role in relations between the Parliament and the other EU institutions, third countries and organisations outside the EU.
