Belgium 2014 EP election map - cantonal majorities
Yesterday I published on Federal Elections in Belgium - Elections to the Senate and the Chamber of Representatives a cantonal-level election map of the parliamentary election held in the Western European country last May 25. However, on that same day Belgian voters also elected their members of the European Parliament, and here is the corresponding election map for the European vote in Belgium.

May 25, 2014 European Parliament Election Map: Majority Party by Canton

The outcome of the European Parliament election in Belgium was broadly similar to that of the Chamber of Representatives vote held on the same day, but by no means identical. To be certain, the New Flemish Alliance (N-VA) topped the poll in both races, but its lead was considerably smaller in the European vote: it actually finished behind Open VLD - the Flemish Liberals - in Flemish Brabant, and faced strong competition from the Flemish Christian Democrats (CD&V) and the Liberals in West and East Flanders, respectively; N-VA prevailed in both constituencies, but just barely. In all, the New Flemish Alliance carried 53 of the 104 Flemish cantons in the European vote, down from 87 in the Chamber election.

Meanwhile, in Wallonia the Humanist Democratic Center (CDH) had a weaker showing in the European election, and lost Luxembourg province to the Reform Movement (MR). However, in the two cantons of Belgium's German-speaking Community, the Christian Social Party (CSP) emerged as the largest party, outperforming CDH - its Francophone counterpart - in the Chamber vote.
