The European Parliament after Brexit

Rövid áttekintés 14-01-2020

Once the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the EU becomes legally effective, 73 EP seats will become vacant. Twenty-seven of these seats will be re-distributed among 14 Member States. The remaining 46 seats would be available for potential EU enlargements and/or for the possible future creation of a transnational constituency.

The allocation of seats in collegiate organs such as parliaments requires a method to translate votes proportionally into whole seats. The 'd'Hondt method' is a mathematical formula used widely in proportional representation systems, although it leads to less proportional results than other systems for seat allocation such as the Hare-Niemeyer and Sainte-Laguë/Schepers methods. Moreover, it tends to increase the advantage for the electoral lists which gain most votes to the detriment of those with ...

Japan: Shinzō Abe wins a new mandate

Rövid áttekintés 25-10-2017

Shinzō Abe won the snap elections he called for the lower house on 22 October 2017. Despite her popularity, Tokyo's governor Yuriko Koike failed to convince the electorate to oust a prime minister in charge since December 2012.

Argentina ahead of the 2017 mid-term elections

Rövid áttekintés 10-10-2017

Since his election in 2015, Argentina's centre-right President, Mauricio Macri, has pursued sweeping domestic and foreign policy reforms, although his 'Let's Change' (Cambiemos) coalition of centre-right and centre-left parties holds only a minority of seats in the bicameral Congress. His presidency has marked a major shift from left-wing populism under his predecessors, Néstor Kirchner (2003-2007) and Cristina Fernández de Kirchner (2007-2015), to economic neoliberalism. The mid-term vote on 22 ...

The European Parliament: electoral procedures

Ismertetők az EU-ról 01-10-2017

The procedures for electing the European Parliament are governed both by European legislation defining rules common to all Member States and by specific national provisions which vary from one state to another. The common rules lay down the principle of proportional representation and certain incompatibilities with a mandate as a Member of the European Parliament. Many other important matters, such as the exact electoral system used and the number of constituencies, are governed by national laws. ...

A Nizzai Szerződés csak részben készítette fel az Európai Uniót a 2004-es és 2007-es fontos keleti, illetve déli bővítésekre. A laekeni nyilatkozatban felvetett kérdések nyomán az Európa jövőjével foglalkozó konvent ezért erőfeszítéseket tett annak érdekében, hogy új jogalapot teremtsen az Unió számára az európai alkotmány létrehozásáról szóló szerződés formájában. Ezt a szerződést azonban két tagállam negatív végeredményű népszavazása következtében nem ratifikálták.

The European Parliament: historical background

Ismertetők az EU-ról 01-04-2017
