The grouping does not appear to have an official leader or organisational structure and, instead, appears to work as a means through which its members can collectively draw attention to what it believes are irregularities within the European Union.
The members of Platform for Transparency were:
- Paul van Buitenen (Europe Transparent) — an independent member of the European Greens–European Free Alliance group between 2004 and 2009.
- Ashley Mote (Independent) — a Non-Inscrit member, representing South East England, who was elected in 2004 as a member of the United Kingdom Independence Party. He did not seek re-election in 2009.
On 8 January 2007 it was reported that Ashley Mote will become a member of the new Identity, Tradition, Sovereignty group in the European Parliament, which includes far-right and nationalist elements.] It is not known if this will affect the continued operation of Platform for Transparency.
