USING THE MEP CHART

Look for the country's line, determine rankings (e.g. largest party, second largest, etc.), and look up each party's number. For example, the largest party in Spain wins 24 seats, the second largest 18, the third 8, and so on.

If two parties are tied, then add the seats together and divide in half. For example, if two parties in Spain are tied for the lead, each would receive 21 MEPs. Drop fractions.

If not all parties are present in a country, divide the unallocated seats evenly among the parties that are present. Leftover seats go to the largest party. For example, if there are only three parties in Spain, the remaining fourteen seats need to be allocated. Four MEPs would go to each party present, and the remaining two to the largest one.

Do this for each country in the Round. Record the total seats won in the Round on the Round Sheet and in the appropriate space on the next Round's Sheet. The moderator will do this for the nonplaying parties.

If the Eurosceptics are the largest party in any country, then that country does not join the Union. Remove its seats from play.
