The 1989 European Parliamentary Election was a European election held across the 12 European Community member states in June 1989.

Results

The Socialists held their third consecutive victory, rising to 180 seats (166 pre-election) with the People's Party managing to win only 8 extra seats. However the European Democrats had a massive loss of 32 of the 66 seats knocking them from third to sixth largest party. The liberals, who had already risen one place with the byelections in Spain and Portugal earlier, gained an extra seat holding their new found third place with both the Rainbow and Communist groups splitting post-election.
