The European elections are scheduled for May 23-26 2019 when voters from across the European Union will return 705 members to the European Parliament (MEPs).

Depending on the outcome of Brexit negotiations and the ensuing exit plans for the United Kingdom, the new parliament will most likely see a reduction in the number of MEPs, from 751 to 705.

Check out the European Council Decision (2018/937) of 28 June 2018 establishing the composition of the European Parliament for more information.
