European Parliamentary Election 2019
European Parliamentary elections are held every five years. and the electoral region of Wales returns four Members to the European Parliament.
Britain is one of eight countries - including Germany and France - to use a "closed list" system. So you vote for a party, rather than an individual (although Independent candidates can stand in their own right). The parties themselves decide who goes on the candidate list for each of the 12 electoral regions. The ones at the top stand the best chance of being elected. The way seats are allocated within each European constituency uses the D'hondt system., which is a form of proportional representation.
The next elections are scheduled for 23 May 2019.
