politics and government of
the Netherlands

The 2014 European Parliament election for the election of the delegation from the Netherlands was held on May 22, 2014. This is the 8th time the elections have been held for the European elections in the Netherlands.

Background[edit]

Voting and election organization[edit]

Active voting right[edit]

In order to cast a vote (for the right to vote) in elections for the European Parliament. The voter should:

  • have either the Dutch nationality or the nationality of a European Union member state;
  • be 18 years or older;
  • not be disqualified from voting.

Non-Dutch citizens who are nationals of other Member States of the European Union may vote at the election of the European Parliament, provided that they:

  • are living on the day of the candidates' nomination in the Netherlands;
  • have attained the age of 18 on the day of the vote;
  • are not disqualified from voting either in the Netherlands or in the Member State in which they are a citizen;
  • have registered in a municipality with a statement that they want to vote in the Netherlands. (The so-called Y-32 form.)

Dutch nationals abroad have to register to vote for the elections to the European Parliament. Upon registration request, they must indicate whether they are voting by letter, by proxy, or in person at a polling station in the Netherlands. Dutch nationals living in another EU Member State must make a statement that they have not voted in the Member State in which they reside.

Dutch residents of Aruba, Curaçao and Sint Maarten have the same required as other Dutch living abroad. Dutch residents on Bonaire, St. Eustatius, and Saba have no need to register, because these islands are part of the Netherlands. They may, as in other Dutch municipalities, vote at their polling stations.

The number of granted requests for registration in 2014 was 23,799 individuals. This was down from 39,601 registered international voters in 2009. Of these registered voters, 21,017 indicated they wanted to vote by mail, 1,804 requested to vote in the Netherlands itself at a polling station, and 978 wanted to grant power of attorney to someone in the Netherlands.

Passive voting right[edit]

To stand for election (for the right to be elected), a candidate should:

  • have either Dutch nationality or the nationality of a Member State of the European Union;
  • be eighteen years on the day of possible admission to the European Parliament;
  • not be excluded from the right to vote.

Non-Dutch candidates from other Member States of the European Union must, in addition, be an actual resident in the Netherlands and not be excluded from the right to be elected in the Member State of which they are a national.

Organization of elections[edit]

In elections for the European Parliament, the national electoral districts play no role in the nomination. The Netherlands consists of a single electoral district. Political parties, therefore, take part in the elections with only a single candidate list.

Although the national electoral districts do play an important role in processing the election results. The principal polling station of each constituency determines the vote total of the constituency. The results of the vote are recorded in an official document and transferred to the Electoral Council. The Electoral Council, in its role as the central electoral committee, then determines the result of the Netherlands' distribution of seats.

The transfer of the official recorded votes to the Electoral Council took place in 18 constituencies on Monday, May 26, 2014. On Tuesday, May 27, this transfer occured for the two remaining constituencies where the municipalities Raalte, Kampen (constituency Zwolle), and Ouder-Amstel, (constituency Haarlem) experimented with a centralized counting of votes.

Casting a vote[edit]

A voter could cast their vote at a polling station of their choice within their own district. At the casting their vote, they could identify themselves with an identity document which is considered valid even if it has expired within the last 5 years.

Voters who voted in the election for the European Parliament in 2014 from outside the Netherlands experimented with a new model ballot. In this new ballot, parties were allowed to show the party logo above their candidates if it had been registered in advance with the Electoral Council.

Participation of political groups[edit]

On Monday, April 14, 2014, the Electoral Council had a public hearing on the validity of the lists of candidates for the election of the Dutch seats for the European Parliament. The candidate list of the Women's Party was declared invalid because the required deposit to participate (€ 11,250) was not paid. Furthermore, the following candidates of the Party for the Animals were deleted because their documentation was incomplete and, as such ,could not participate in the election:

  • T. Regan (United States);
  • W. T. Kymlicka (Canada);
  • J.M. Coetzee (Australia).

Numbering of the candidates list[edit]

In the same public hearing on April 14, 2014, the Electoral Council also numbered the lists of candidates. The parties who had obtained one or more seats in 2009 at the last election to the European Parliament were given a number based on the number of votes that the parties had achieved in the previous election. These totaled 8 candidate lists. The party with the most votes got number 1 and the rest were listed accordingly. The list numbers for the remaining 11 candidates were decided by a lottery.

The official order and names of candidate lists:

  1. CDA - European People's Party
  2. PVV (Party for Freedom)
  3. P.v.d.A./European Social Democrats
  4. VVD
  5. Democrats 66 (D66) - ALDE
  6. GREENLEFT
  7. SP (Socialist Party)
  8. Christian Union-SGP
  9. Article 50
  10. IQ, the Rights-Obligations-Party
  11. Pirate Party
  12. 50PLUS
  13. The Greens
  14. Anti EU(ro) Party
  15. Liberal Democratic Party
  16. JESUS LIVES
  17. ichooseforhonest.eu
  18. Party for the Animals
  19. Focus and Simplicity

Common lists[edit]

A common list consists of 2 distinct parties which are sharing the same candidate list. The ChristianUnion and SGP formed a common list ChristenUnie-SGP for the European Parliament election.

Electoral alliances[edit]

Several parties formed an electoral alliance.

  1. CDA/European People's Party and ChristenUnie-SGP
  2. PvdA/European Social-Democrats and GreenLeft

Election day[edit]

Traditionally, all elections are held on Wednesday in the Netherlands. Sunday is not an option because it's a resting day for Orthodox Christians, while Friday and Saturday are impossible, because of the Sabbath. Monday is also impossible, because then all preparation for an election would need to happen on the weekend. That leaves Tuesday,Wednesday and Thursday as possible election days. Many polling stations are located in schools, therefore, Wednesday is chosen because it is usually the quietest day of the week for classes. However, the European Parliament Elections run from Thursday to Sunday across the entire European Union. Therefore, Thursday is the election day for the European Parliament Elections. [1]

Treaty of Lisbon[edit]

Further information: Treaty of Lisbon

According to the Treaty of Lisbon, the Netherlands was awarded 26 seats in the European parliament. This is one more than the election of 2009. The last elections were held when the treaty was not yet in effect, because not all member states had ratified the treaty. The treaty came into effect during the last session of the European Parliament. The additional seat was then awarded to the Party of Freedom on October 9, 2011 based on the results of the 2009 election. This increased the numbers of seats for the PVV from 4 to 5 for the 2009-2014 session.

The election committee also calculated what would have happened without electoral alliances. In that case the CDA - European People's Party would have 4 seats instead of 5 and the Socialist Party 3 seats instead of 2.

Awarding seats within electoral alliances[edit]

To decide the seats per party for electoral alliances, the combination quota is first determined. Combination quota for electoral alliances are determined by the total number valid votes divided by the awarded seats. The party with the most votes left after the full seats are assigned gets the seat remaining.

List A
For list A, there were 1,086,609 votes divided by 7 seats. The combination quota was established as: 155,229 votes

Summary:

Final results[edit]

The Christian Democratic Appeal got the most seats and was seen as the winner of the 2014 elections, although it lost the biggest percentage of votes and Democrats 66 received more votes. The Christian Democratic Appeal helped them to win an extra seat, thanks to their electoral alliance with Christian Union-SGP. The euro-sceptic PVV (Party for Freedom) was the biggest loser of the 2014 elections, though it only lost 1 seat. Contrary to other European countries, the euro-sceptic movement did worse than previous elections.
