The parliamentary group of the Free Democrats (also FDP parliamentary group ) is the parliamentary group of the Free Democratic Party (FDP) in the German Bundestag .

The members of the current FDP parliamentary group were elected in 2017 . With the constitution of the 19th German Bundestag on October 24, 2017, the parliamentary group is again represented in the Bundestag after a four-year absence. It is currently the second largest opposition faction there. The parliamentary group consists of 19 women and 61 politicians, 58 of whom are new to parliament and 22 were already represented in the 17th German Bundestag .

Group leaders

Christian Lindner Rainer Brüderle Birgit Homburger Guido Westerwelle Wolfgang Gerhardt Hermann Otto Solms Wolfgang Mischnick Knut von Kühlmann-Stumm Erich Mende Max Becker Thomas Dehler Hermann Schäfer August-Martin Euler Hermann Schäfer Theodor Heuss

Notes: If a chairman was re-elected by the new parliamentary group after a Bundestag election, an uninterrupted term of office is given. For Wolfgang Gerhardt and Christian Lindner, the beginning of the term of office is not understood to be the time of the election, but the assumption of office with the constitution of the Bundestag.
