The article considers the voting results in the elections to the European Parliament in the post-communist EU countries in 2004, 2007 and 2009. On the basis of the descriptive analysis of the electoral statistics, A.Samoletova concludes that these results are adequately described by the theory of second-order elections. At the same time, her study shows that during the European elections one can clearly trace the specifics of the post-communist countries, where party systems are still in the process of transformation.
