Denmark (European Parliament constituency)

Denmark is one single European Parliament constituency. Since the June 2009 Parliament election it has been represented by thirteen members of the European Parliament. It covers the EU member state of Denmark, but not the Faroe Islands or Greenland which are not part of the EU.

Denmark uses the d'Hondt method of proportional representation. Electoral coalitions between two or more parties are allowed.
