ACTIVITY REPORT of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats in the European Parliament.

ACTIVITY REPORT of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats in the European Parliament. FROM BUDAPEST TO LISBON - 3 years of challenges for the S&D Group.

This activity report of the S&D Group is a continuation of the reports submitted to the PES Congresses in Rome and Budapest. It covers the largest part of the 2014 – 2019 EP term-of-office, and the activities and achievements of the S&D Group successively led by Gianni Pittella and Udo Bullmann.

Since the PES Congress in Budapest in June 2015, the S&D Group has been faced with many challenges in a radically right-wing dominated Parliament. Even though our political family managed to maintain its position after the 2014 European elections with more or less 25% of the seats, the global picture in the EP had changed dramatically. Despite massive losses, the EPP remained the biggest political group. The extreme right, populist, Eurosceptic and xenophobic parties made a major breakthrough, and went on to establish two, and later three political groups. The radical left too made substantial gains.
