    In order to aid in the explanation of what European Parliament elections are ‘all about,’ this paper will assess two contrasting hypotheses about such elections. The first is the view of these elections as being second-order contests, especially the expectation of an anti-government swing vote. The second view is the expression of anti-integration sentiment. It will be shown that for most member countries, one of the given explanations clearly fits better statistically than the other.
