European Elections

At the moment the Parliament boasts 751 seats, which is the maximum number allowed by the EU treaties. Following the UK's referendum, 27 of the UK's 73 seats will be redistributed to other countries, while the remaining 46 seats will be kept for future enlargements. This means the number of MEPs to be elected will be 705. Here is the overview of the 2014 European elections and how they work in the UK. European elections are held every 5 years.     The next election will be between 23 to 26 May 2019. Watch this space for more information.
