Gustav Christofer Ingemar Fjellner (born 13 December 1976) is a Swedish politician and Member of the European Parliament (MEP) from Sweden. He is a member of the Moderate Party, part of the European People's Party. Fjellner gained national prominence as chairman of the Moderate Youth League from 2002 to 2004.
He sits on the European Parliament's Committee on International Trade and its Committee on Budgetary Control. In that capacity, he drafted the Parliament’s review of EU spending in 2010. He is also a substitute for the Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety, a member of the delegation for relations with Belarus, and a substitute for the delegation for relations with Iran.
In September 2016, Fjellner joined more than 50 MEPs from six different political groups – including Ashley Fox, Alojz Peterle, Vicky Ford and Beatrix von Storch – in signing a proposal for a two-term limit of the President of the European Parliament. This move was widely seen as an effort to prevent incumbent Martin Schulz from holding onto the presidency for a third consecutive term.
