27 Views of Europe

The European Parliamentary Elections will be held in the 27 member states of the European Union between 4 and 7 June 2009. 736 Members of the European Parliament will be elected to represent some 500,000,000 Europeans, making these the biggest trans-national elections in history.

Reporters at the magazine Spiegel online in Germany, NRC Handelsblad in the Netherlands and Politiken in Denmark have worked together on profiling attitudes about the election and the EU in each of the member states. You can read them by clicking on the respective country.

Hi Francessa,
I shall have a look at your map later on. Did you know that as a foreign national I am unable to vote in my country of residence for the national government? I can vote in the German Elections, the European Elections and the local Shropshire elections, but not for the UK government. I would have to give up my German nationality, which I am not willing to do. They do, however, generously, let me pay taxes.

Thanks so much for tagging me; I shall get round to following instructions asap.

Hi Friko,

No, I was not aware of this, but I think it's highly unfair.

Looking forward to your meme-answers.
