Welcome to the first aggregation results with our new aggregation model for the European Parliament Election 2019. Please be aware that the results are preliminary at the moment. What you see here is only a first glimpse of what we are working on.
The European Parliament Election takes place every five years and all European Citizens vote for national party lists in their respective EU-country, which then, in turn, fill the number of seats allocated to each of the 27 countries. The EU Parliament is the only directly elected institution in the triad of EU-institutions. The EP-election also gained importance through the so-called Spitzenkandidaten-process, where each party group chooses a frontrunner candidate, who they support as next president of the EU commission. This process was first applied in 2014 when Jean-Claude Juncker became president after his supporting party group, the European People's Party received the most votes in the EP-election 2014.
The chart below shows the number of seats for each party group in the European Parliament according to the national poll of polls in each country and the number of seats each country holds in the European Parliament. We do not consider recent or announced changes of party alignments, thus En Marche is included with the new parties and M5S are with the EFDD group in our model.
