2004[edit]

The 2004 European election was the sixth election to the European Parliament. However, as the Czech Republic had only joined the European Union earlier that month, it was the first election European election held in that state.

On a very low turnout, the ruling Czech Social Democratic Party suffered a heavy defeat, losing ground to both the conservative Civic Democratic Party and the Communist Party of Bohemia and Moravia. Debacle of his party was one of reasons for resignation of Prime Minister Vladimír Špidla. Full results;[1]
