Members

CORLEAP brings together 36 regional and local politicians (mayors, or members of local and regional assemblies or parliaments): 18 from each of the six Eastern partner countries and 18 from the EU Committee of the Regions. CORLEAP aims to achieve a political balance and, as far as possible, geographical distribution of its members.

Each Eastern partner country has three seats. The EU seats are distributed according to the political composition of the Committee of the Regions, divided between its five political groups: European People's Party (EPP), Party of European Socialists (PES) Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe (ALDE), European Alliance (EA) and the European Conservatives and Reformists Group (ECR).

Between the CORLEAP meetings a Bureau acts as a steering body. The Bureau is responsible for coordinating the work of CORLEAP, monitoring its activities, reports and resolutions. It is composed of six members from the partner countries and six members from the CoR representing the European Union. CORLEAP has two co-chairs one representing the partner countries and one representing the EU.
