The Kieskompas research institute has mapped out the position of political parties for the European elections in five countries. Kieskompas uses the political landscape for this. This political landscape consists of two axes. The horizontal axis deals with socio-economic themes such as work, subsidies and taxes. The vertical axis deals with socio-cultural topics, such as views on immigration and attitudes towards Europe.
A voting aid has been made for the Netherlands, Germany, France, Italy and Sweden. The political parties were placed on the positions by a team of local academic experts. This is done based on the scientific method of the Election Compass. All placements are justified on the basis of official positions of the parties. These sources can also be consulted in the Kieskompas. This makes Kieskompas the most reliable voting aid.

During the election campaign, Kieskompas will report on striking trends and opinions. Keep an eye on our website and social media for this.
Not all parties participating in the European parliamentary elections were included in the Electoral Compasses. The Kieskompas method takes into account the parties that sit in the national parliament and new parties that gauge at least one seat for some time.
