European Parliament election, 2004 (Czech Republic)

The European Parliament election of 2004 in the Czech Republic was the election of MEPs representing Czech Republic constituency for the 2004–2009 term of the European Parliament. It was part of the wider 2004 European election.

These were first European elections after the EU accession and hence the first to be held in the Czech Republic. They took place on 11 and 12 June 2004. On a very low turnout, the ruling Czech Social Democratic Party suffered a heavy defeat, losing ground to both the conservative Civic Democratic Party and the Communist Party of Bohemia and Moravia. Debacle of his party was one of reasons for resignation of Prime Minister Vladimír Špidla.
