Former Romanian Prime Minister Dacian Cioloș is set to become the groupʼs president, succeeding Belgian ex-PM Guy Verhofstadt as leader of the European liberals.

"Katalin Cseh will sit as the only Hungarian within the leadership of a European parliamentary group, constantly demonstrating that Hungary is not identical with Viktor Orbán and Fidesz; that there is another, freedom-loving, open, young Hungary," the Momentum party said regarding the appointment.

"Renew Europe" was created through the cooperation of ALDE MEPs and those of French President Emmanuel Macron’s En Marche! party.
