Electoral threshold[edit]

The previous electoral threshold of 5% was ruled unconstitutional in 2011, leading the major parties to implement a 3% threshold instead. However the Constitutional Court ruled on 26 February 2014 that this threshold was illegal as well.[2] Under this circumstances a vote share of 0.6% proved sufficient to win an EP seat (result of "Die PARTEI) and seven parties won single seats; the seats were allocated according to the "largest remainder method.
