 Subject:  Impact of Brexit on the organisation of the European elections
 Answer in writing 

The growing uncertainty over Brexit and when it will actually happen is also extending to the organisation of the European elections. The composition of the next Parliament is supposed to have the impact of Brexit factored in: 73 British seats are to be done away with; the total number of seats will be reduced to 705; and additional seats are to be assigned to several Member States, including France (+5). The seat projections based on opinion polls, one of the sources of information that Parliament is providing to European citizens, are, moreover, taking this new configuration into account, as are the national authorities dealing with nominations.

Given this context, and the imperative of guaranteeing legal certainty:

What arrangement would be put in place for the European elections if the United Kingdom were still to be a member of the EU on the date when they were held?
