The South-East is the largest of the UK’s Euro constituencies, and has 10 seats allocated – more than six other EU countries as a whole. The S-E electoral region covers 83 parliamentary constituencies in Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire, Surrey, Hampshire, Sussex, and Kent.
The key feature has been the growth of support for the United Kingdom Independence Party, mainly at the expense of the current coalition parties. Six of the 10 elected were already sitting MEPs. Of the two new MEPs in 2009, Liberal Democrat Catherine Bearder retained the only seat in the UK for her party, while Marta Andreassen, formerly in UKIP, had joined the Conservatives and lost her European Parliament seat in this election. New MEPs are Janice Atkinson, Ray Finch and Diane James for UKIP, and Anneliese Dodds for Labour.
