EU Elections 2019 Outlook

Voters across the European Union head to the polls between 23rd and 26th May to elect 751 MEPs to the European Parliament in what is set to be another trend-setting election in Europe.

Markets will be primarily focused on the potential rise of Eurosceptic parties in the Parliament, a continuation of a recent trend seen in National elections. Meanwhile, in the UK, the vote is likely to be seen by many as a proxy 2nd referendum, with the vote likely to be split between heavily Europhile and heavily Eurosceptic parties.
