The European Parliament election, 2014 was held on 25 May 2014 in Germany. Under the Lisbon Treaty, Germany lost three seats and elected 96 members of the European Parliament, instead of the previous 99.

Electoral threshold[edit]

The previous electoral threshold of 5% was ruled unconstitutional in 2011, leading the major parties to implement a 3% threshold instead. However the Constitutional Court ruled on 26 February 2014 that this threshold was illegal as well.[1]
