Paulo Artur dos Santos Castro de Campos Rangel (born 18 February 1968 in Vila Nova de Gaia) is a Portuguese jurist and politician, vice-president of the European People's Party.

Member of the European Parliament, 2014–present[edit]

Rangel has been a Member of the European Parliament (MEP) since the 2009 European elections. Upon entering the parliament, he was chosen as one of the vice-presidents of the European People's Party Group.

Rangel has since been serving on the Committee on Constitutional Affairs. In that capacity, he drafted the parliament’s 2010 report on the framework agreement between the European Commission and the Parliament, which demanded that MEPs should be allowed to participate in international negotiations that lead to accords that need parliamentary backing.[1] In 2014, he became the committee’s vice-chairman. In addition, he was elected chairman of the parliament’s delegation for relations with Brazil.

Ahead of the 2014 European elections, the PSD named Rangel at the top of their list.[2] Within the European People's Party, he has been chairing the Working Group on EPP Membership since 2016.[3]
