DISTRIBUTION OF SEATS IN THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE PRINCIPLE OF DIGRESSIVE PROPORTIONALITY (Podzial miejsc w Parlamencie Europejskim zgodnie z zasada degresywnej proporcjonalnosci)
Division of mandates to the European Parliament has been regulated in the Lisbon Treaty, according to which seats are allocated according to the principle of digressive proportionality. The terms of the new rules are associated with large differences in the population of the European Union countries, which have taken place since the inception of the Union. Despite the fact that the new rule has been in force since 2009, in the paper the author has shown that the divisions existing in previous terms of office of the European Parliament also complied with the new assumptions.
