Note: this country-based report is part of the broader study that measured the influence of MEPs from all 28 EU Members States. To consult the methodology and cross-country comparisons read the full “Who holds the power in the European Parliament?” study.
The most influential Danish MEP is a member of the Socialist People’s Party (Greens/EFA), Margrete Auken. In addition to her job as an MEP, Auken is a parish priestess of the Church of Denmark. In the EP, she is already on her 3rd term and she is focused on environmental issues: she was rapporteur on the reduction of the consumption of lightweight plastic carrier bags. Auken also holds important positions in both her political group and the European Parliament as a whole. In fact, she is a Vice-chair of the EP delegation to Palestine, as well as the political coordinator of Greens/EFA in the Committee on Petitions.
