10-04-2004 20:53The European elections will be held in the Netherlands on the 10th of June 2004. On this date (and on the 13th of June in some other countries) the European Union (EU) member states will each elect their share of 736 parliamentary seats. The number of seats a country gets depends on the amount of inhabitants in that particular country. During the last European elections, only thirty percent of the Dutch electorate bothered to vote. The media and politicians blame the low turnout mainly on voter disinterest and laziness. People are also supposedly not aware of what the European Union means for them.
