2007

The 2007 European election was Bulgaria's first since joining the European Union on 2007-01-01 and was held on 2007-05-20.

The top two parties scored 5 seats each; Citizens for European Development of Bulgaria and European Socialists Platform, followed by the Movement for Rights and Freedoms with four, Ataka with three, and National Movement Simeon II (NDSV) with one. It was considered likely that the result of the election would cause a major political crisis in Bulgaria, due to the expected weak results of the National Movement.

2009

The next election will be in 2009 and the number of seats would be reduced to 17, but under proposed new rules it may remain at 18.
