Winners and losers of EU politics – June 2018 (NATO, posting of drivers, etc)

During June's plenary session, MEPs took key decisions on the future rules for the workers in the road transportation sector, the future cooperation between the EU and NATO, and debated Rutte's plans for the future of Europe.

As always, our special report highlights the most disputed issues, who made coalitions with whom, who won and who lost, the oddest voting behavior of EU Parliamentarians (MEPs) and the strangest bedfellows that occurred in Strasbourg.

Additionally, in order to "celebrate" the 4th anniversary of this term of the European Parliament, this report will provide you with information on the overall performance of the European political groups  over these past 4 years.
