European Parliament elections are currently due to be held in the United Kingdom and Gibraltar in 2019 as part of the 2019 European Parliamentary Elections. However, in June 2016, a referendum on United Kingdom membership of the European Union resulted in a vote in favour of the UK leaving the European Union. In October 2016, the Prime Minister Theresa May announced that she would trigger Article 50 by March 2017. As a country takes two years to leave the EU after triggering Article 50, this means that the UK will probably cease to be a member of the European Union prior to the planned date in 2019, and the elections would then not occur.
