The ALDE group renamed “Renew Europe”

The liberals group at the European Parliament, previously known as the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE) chose a new name for itself on 12th June: “Renew Europe”, a title that gets close to the idea of “European Renaissance” put forward by French President Emmanuel Macron. The name change was driven by French MEPs from La République en Marche, the leading delegation in the group, which should have around 110 seats and is the third largest group at the European Parliament.
