Slovakia will have 14 MEPs in the EP, all chosen from parties which gain more than 5 percent of the vote in the elections. The number of MEPs from each party depends on how large that party’s share of the vote is. Each party in Slovakia can field up to a maximum of 14 candidates and under a preferential voting system, voters can indicate which candidate they would like to see elected.
