The Bureau of the PA-UfM consists of four members appointed for a four-year mandate: two appointed by the Southern Mediterranean partner countries, one appointed by the EU national parliaments and one appointed by the European Parliament. The European Parliament is a permanent member of the Bureau. Its function is to coordinate and represent the Assembly.
Spain, Morocco and the European Parliament make up the bureau for the 2020-2024 period. In order to fill the remaining empty seat reserved to a South Mediterranean partner country, a call for expression of interest has been re-launched.
