EU elections: how many MEPs will each country get in 2019?
The distribution of seats in the Parliament is set to change after the next European elections as a result of Brexit according to a proposal to be voted by MEPs on 7th February 2018.
The proposal calls for a reduction in the overall number of seats after the UK's withdrawal from the EU comes into force, but also suggests to allocate additional MEPs to some EU countries.
The new rules would come into force in time for the European elections in 2019. At the moment the Parliament boasts 751 seats, which is the maximum number allowed by the EU treaties. The report by the constitutional affairs committee proposes to redistribute 27 of the UK's 73 seats to other countries, while keeping the remaining 46 seats for either pan-European electoral lists or future enlargements. This would mean the number of MEPs to be elected in individual member states would be 705. MEPs propose that the new distribution comes in force only after the UK has left the EU, that is currently expected to happen at the end of March 2019. Once MEPs have voted on it during a plenary session, the proposal will be submitted to EU heads of state who need to reach a unanimous decision. Parliament will then have to give its final consent. In addition, the Conference of Presidents, consisting of Parliament President Antonio Tajani and the political group leaders, have proposed to the Council that the European elections should be held from 23rd May to 26th May 2019.
