In 2019 the citizens of the European Union will elect the European Parliament. The election will happen for the ninth time. National Electoral acts are the basis of this election and uniform European election is not preferred.
The European Elections Act and the European Electoral Regulations govern the election procedure in the Federal Republic of Germany. The estimated dates for the next European Parliament Elections are 23-26 May, 2019. Wherein, a proposal will be sent from the Parliament to the Council.
A total of 751 members of the European Parliament (MEP’s) represents average 500 million people from 28 member states, where it is assumed that in coming elections number of MEP’s to be elected would see a reduction from 751 to 705, going by the assumption, where United Kingdom withdraws from the European Union on the currently planned schedule. General Suffrage/common suffrage most famously referred as Universal Suffrage helps conduct Elections to the European Parliament, every five years. In this concept, the right to vote of all adults which is only subjected to minor exceptions, falls. 751 MEP’s are elected to the European Parliament which has been directly elected since 1979.
National Elections indirectly legitimize the Council of the European Union and the European Council. No other European Union institution is directly elected. While, a formally European Political Party or informally Europarty gets the right to campaign European-Union wide for the European Elections. The set of campaigns do take place through national election campaign where they advertise national delegates from national parties.
