The European elections and Brexit

7 May 2019

After some forty years of membership during which hardly any attention was paid to European elections, we finally have one about which people care. Ironically, it’s an EU election taking place after we were meant to have left, and potentially soon before we will in fact leave. Nevertheless, it has piqued our interest. This report is meant to guide you on the basics of the European elections, what they mean, what to expect and what changes it may bring about to the European Union in the next 5 years.
