European Parliament Election – level 2
The election in the European Parliament happened from May 23rd to May 26th. Around 400 million Europeans were eligible to vote and 51% of them did. That is around 203 million people.
People thought that nationalist parties would get a lot of votes and they did. For the first time ever, they won one quarter of the seats in the parliament. However, pro-EU parties still hold most seats – 507 out of the total 751.
