Major parties in each Province

The European Parliament election of 2014 in Italy took place on 25 May 2014. Italy elected 73 MEPs out of 751 European Parliament seats.[1]

The governing Democratic Party (PD) won the election with 40.8% of the vote and 31 seats, followed by the Five Star Movement (21.2% and 17 seats) and Forza Italia (16.8% and 13 seats). As a result, the PD was the second largest national party in the European Parliament by number of seats after the German CDU/CSU and the largest among the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats.[2] The PD's score was also the best result for an Italian party in a nationwide election since the 1958 general election, when the Christian Democracy won 42.4% of the vote.

The other parties that have passed the national electoral threshold at 4% are Lega Nord (6.2% and 5 seats), New Centre-Right – Union of the Centre (4.4% and 3 seats) and The Other Europe (4.0% and 3 seats). The parties that haven't passed the electoral threshold and that haven't gained any seat are Brothers of Italy (3.7%), Green Italy – European Greens (0.9%), European Choice (0.7%), Italy of Values (0.7%) and I ChangeAssociative Movement Italians Abroad (0.2%).

The 4% threshold can be bypassed by parties representing linguistic minorities, provided they get more than 50,000 votes, in connection with a party gaining more than 4% of the vote. The South Tyrolean People's Party, representing the German-speaking minority of South Tyrol, won a seat thanks to its connection with the PD.
