For the swedish EP-election the following applies for candidates:
* Must be 18 years old
* Is swedish citizen (anywhere in the world) or is or has been living in
* Is citizen in a different EU country and is living in Sweden
* Additional demands - may not be member of swedish parliament, may have
certain jobs within the EU
Living in is defined as registered as inhabitant with the tax authority.
Links in swedish to swedish election authority:
The first 3 appears to be nationally decided and the last one appears to
be EU-rule, though appearances are uncertain. So we in Sweden could
include swedish citizens in France, or french citizens in Sweden, but not
french citizens in France on our list (if they did not use to live in
I seriously recommend calling the election authority in France to sort out
what rules you have for party registration and candidates.
while on this topic, I would also like to point out the excellent site
pp-de has put up to collect signatures:
