40 Years of European Parliamentary Elections (June 7-10, 1979)
In June of 1979 the citizens the European Union—consisting of nine member states at the time—had the chance to directly elect their representatives to the European Parliament for the very first time. Up until then the representatives had been appointed by the national parliaments.
The European parliamentary assembly was created in 1951 along with the European Coal and Steel Union. Its original members were the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Italy and the Federal Republic of Germany. The system of direct election is adopted in 1976 after the European Coal and Steel Union merges with the European Economic Community and the European Atomic Energy Community, at the same time new members expand the European Community . While the European Parliament operates mostly in an advisory capacity the first European Parliamentary Elections three years later are considered a significant and symbolic step that essentially legitimized its democratic character.
With the founding of the European Union in 1993 the once entirely economic union morphs into a comprehensive political organization. In other words, the competencies of the supranational parliament expand significantly. It gets to decide over European laws and the EU’s budget, it controls the common institutions and elects the president of the European Commission. With the European Union playing an increasingly vital role a number of political parties start to nominate EU-wide top-candidates in 2014. This May the ninth direct election of the European Parliament takes place, with 28 EU-member states electing a total of 751 delegates.
