EP election 2019

European Parliament election took place in Slovakia on Saturday, May 25.

Slovakia will have 14 MEPs in the EP (13 immediately, one will join after Brexit), 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. 

Citizens of other EU countries living in Slovakia could vote too. Here is how.
