Influence by country
How is influence distributed amongst MEPs from the different countries across the EU?
We take a look at the relative influence of each Member State, assessing their share of seats in the European Parliament against their total share of influence. This allows us to grasp the distribution of influence, supposing that all countries have the same number of MEPs.
For example, some countries do better than one would expect based on their size and “punch above their weight” with a higher share of parliamentary influence compared to their share of seats.
