European elections 2024, when will we vote in Italy? Even though there is still a year left until the polls open in the 27 countries that are part of the European Union, the ambassadors of the EU member states have already decided the date of the community consultation: voting will take place from 6 to 9 June 2024.
The elections in Italy European elections 2024 will be – barring sensational reversals in Parliament – the first real test for the Meloni government and the opposition, so much so that there has been great excitement among the parties for some time.
The next European elections – ca va sans dire – will be a very delicate event not only for Italy, but also for the fate of the European Union given that according to the latest polls the "Ursula majority", which currently governs in Brussels, it would be in sharp decline, all to the advantage of the right, independents and eurosceptics.
Here is a guide to the 2024 European elections, with the official date of the vote, the electoral law in force in Italy, how the composition of the next European Parliament will be determined and what the polls say.
EUROPEAN ELECTIONS 2024 DATE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT ELECTION LAW CANDIDATES POLLS European elections 2024: the date Since they were established in 1979, the 2024 elections will be the tenth European elections to be held in the Old Continent.
As per practice, the Council of the European Union unanimously decided the date of the vote.
The ambassadors of the 27 member countries of the European Union have decided to call European elections from 6 to 9 June 2024, with Italy likely to vote on Sunday 9 June.
If each country can independently decide the date of the European elections – always remaining within the range from Thursday 6th to Sunday 9th June 2024 – the counting will begin simultaneously in all states, probably starting from 11pm on Sunday 9th June .
The European Parliament In the 2024 European elections, the citizens of the European Union will vote to elect a total of 705 MEPs: previously there were 751 but, after Brexit, the inevitable cut has arrived.
By law each member state can elect a maximum of 96 MEPs and a minimum of 6; Italy will bring 73 parliamentarians to Brussels and Strasbourg: only Germany (96) and France (79) will elect more than us.
Each state will elect its deputies through its own electoral law which, consequently, will not be the same for all member countries.
Electoral law The electoral law in Italy for the European elections is a pure proportional system: the country is divided into five constituencies (North-West, North-East, Centre, South and Islands), with a threshold at national level for the lists set at 4%.
These are the seats allocated to each constituency in Italy.
North-Western Italy: 20 II.
North-eastern Italy: 15 III.
Central Italy: 15 IV.
Southern Italy: 18 V.
Insular Italy: 8 The electoral law provides for the possibility of expressing a preferential vote: each voter can indicate up to three candidates from the voted constituency list.
The candidates At the moment there is only one official candidate among the big names in the 2024 European elections: Matteo Renzi, who announced his presence among the ranks of the Il Centro list which, in addition to Italia Viva, should also see the presence of other moderate figures.
Also in the centrist area, the former mayor of Milan Letizia Moratti and the leader of South Call North Cateno De Luca could run; in the centre-right, however, there is a lot of talk about Arianna Meloni, sister of Prime Minister Giorgia, as well as a possible return of Roberto Formigoni.
In the Democratic Party there could be Enrico Letta while, as regards the 5 Star Movement, Giuseppe Conte should not grant special exemptions to those who have already held two mandates in Italy or Europe: among the Five Star Movement, however, one of the hottest names is that of Rocco Casalino.
There is also great movement on the left, where the former president of the Puglia Region Nichi Vendola could run with Avs, with the journalist Michele Santoro who could soon announce his own pacifist list to present to the European elections.

As of November 6, this would be the situation for the 2024 European elections.
As can be seen, the polls for the 2024 European elections would see the Ursula majority (PP, S&D and Re) decreasing which, from a total of 421 MEPs in 2019, could go to 394 parliamentarians.
This is the projection of the seats of the next European Parliament according to a Europe Elects elaboration dated October 2023.
These in detail would be the percentages of the various groups and the seats assigned.
EPP (Popular) – 21.3% (160 seats) S&D (Socialists) – 19.1% (146 seats) ECR (Reformers) – 11.8% (86 seats) Id (right) – 10.8% (74 seats) Renew Europe (Liberals) – 9.9% (90 seats) Greens/Efa (Greens) – 7% (52 seats) Unafilliated (not yet registered) – 7% (10 seats) Gue/Ngl (left) – 6 .9% (38 seats) Ni (unaffiliated) – 6% (56 seats) These would instead be the variations in seats compared to the current composition of the European Parliament.
Ecr: +20 Id: +13 Ni: +8 Gue/Ngl: +6 S&D: +2 Renew Europe: -11 Ppe: -12 Greens/Efa: -20 As for Italy, this is the projection of seats according to a processing by Europe Elects dated October 2023.
Brothers of Italy: 25 seats Democratic Party: 19 seats 5 Star Movement: 14 seats Lega: 9 seats Forza Italia: 4 seats Action: 4 seats Svp: 1 seat It remains to be understood however, how will the various centrist components present themselves, with the distribution of seats which could change if the Green-Left Alliance list also exceeds the 4% threshold.
