Identity and Democracy (ID) is a new group, which is the fifth largest one in the current European Parliament.
During the European elections in May, about 200 million Europeans elected MEPs to represent them over the coming five years in the new European Parliament. Those MEPs are organised into groups based on their political affinities.
It has 71 members, which makes it the fifth largest group in the Parliament.
It has MEPs from ten countries, with the majority coming from Italy’s Lega party, the Rassemblement National in France and Germany’s AfD.
Marco Zanni (Italy) was elected president of the group in July 2019. This is his second term in the Parliament. The group has two Vice-Presidents, Nicolas Bay (France) and Jörg Meuthen (Germany).
The ID group's focus is creating jobs and growth, increasing security, tackling illegal immigration, as well as making the EU less bureaucratic.
