2019 European Election

The United Kingdom’s component of the 2019 European Parliament election will be held on Thursday 23rd May 2019. Initially, the elections were not planned as the United Kingdom’s withdrawal from the European Union (following the 2016 referendum) was set for 29th March 2019. However, at the European summit on 11th April 2019, the British government and the European Council agreed to delay British withdrawal until 31st October 2019. While it was then the default position in UK and EU law for the election to take place, the UK Government continued attempts to avoid participation by agreeing on withdrawal before 23rd May. On 7th May 2019, the UK government conceded that the elections will go ahead.
