This chapter focuses on the implications of Brexit for the European Parliament. It will start by evaluating the new distribution of seats and then explore the changes of political groups. Finally, the chapter will showcase some key decisions made in recent years and simulate how these would have looked like without British MEPs. Shedding light on the Parliament’s role in the withdrawal process, the chapter demonstrates that the EP is not just an object of Brexit. It has the democratic mandate and political power to oversee Brexit and to shape the future relations between the EU-27 and the UK.
