The Romanian Foreign Ministry will organize 915 polling stations abroad for the European Parliament elections on June 9, 2024, the Ministry said in a press release here on Monday. The number is 80 more than the 835 opened for the 2019 presidential elections, 167 more than the 748 for the 2020 parliamentary elections, and 474 more than the 441 for the 2019 European Parliament elections.

Most stations will be organized in the countries with the largest communities of Romanian citizens: Italy (150), Spain (147), the UK (104), Germany (87), France and Monaco (67), Moldova (52), the US (45), Belgium (24), Austria (17), Ireland (16), Netherlands (16), Denmark (14), and Canada (12).

Some 42.3% of Romanians believe that the MEPs who will represent their country in European Parliament after the June 9 elections should make sure that Romanians enjoy the same rights as other European citizens, according to a INSCOP Research poll that reached the Bulgarian News Agency (BTA). Another 17.8% believe that the future Romanian MEPs should first of all achieve Romania's full accession to Schengen (including for land borders), and 17.6% set top priority by more EU funds for Romania. According to 10.1%, the interests of various Romanian economic sectors should be protected, 7.7% believe that Romania's role in decision-making at European level should be enhanced, 2.3% mentioned another priority, and 2.3% don't know or would not answer. 

As few as 26.8% of Romanians said they were well informed of the European Parliament's activities (compared to 26% in 2014). As many as 72.3% (up from 69% in 2014) claimed the opposite. Concerning the activities of Romanian MEPs, 26.1% consider themselves rather informed (compared to 26.9% in 2014), and 735 were of the opposite opinion (compared to 68.4% in 2014).
