This European Parliament Election is a unique event in global terms. It gives the opportunity to 400 million eligible voters out of a population of 500 million across 28 countries to elect their representatives.
From 22 to 25 May 2014, elections to the European Parliament will be held in the European Union. It will be the 8th parliamentary election since the first direct elections in 1979, and the first in which the pan-European political parties are fielding candidates for president of the Commission.
The European elections will give voters the chance to influence the future political course of the European Union when they elect the 751 Members of the European Parliament (MEPs) to represent their interests for the next five years
