Marc Angel new Vice President of the European Parliament
Marc Angel of Luxembourg is the new Vice President of the European Parliament. He succeeds Greece’s Eva Kaili, who was sacked on suspicion of corruption while in detention.
The European Parliament has elected a Luxembourgish Social Democrat to succeed Eva Kaili, its vice-president, who was sacked over corruption allegations.
Marc Angel was one of three candidates
The majority of members of the European Parliament voted in Strasbourg on Wednesday for Marc Angel as the new vice-president of the European Parliament. The 59-year-old woman belonged to the same faction as Kylie before being kicked out of the family party.
Angel was one of three candidates. France’s Gwendolyn Delbos-Courfield ran for the Green Party, and Italian Annalisa Tardino ran for the right-wing Populist Identity faction. In Kylie’s place, Angel will now be one of the 14 vice-presidents of Parliament. He has been a Member of the European Parliament since 2019.
Money laundering and corruption allegations against Kylie
The European Parliament overwhelmingly rejected Kylie in December, shortly after corruption allegations emerged against the 44-year-old and other suspects.
The Greek politician and three other suspects are accused of money laundering and corruption. The Gulf states, Qatar and Morocco, would have tried to influence the decisions of the European Parliament. Both countries reject this.
