    Source for getting political parties data (EU)?

    Agata Podvorska

      Hi,

       

      my first post here!

       

      I am trying to create a viz that would show a breakdown of the parties within the national parliaments in the EU countries (possibly expanding further in the future) - by number of seats and political affiliation (ie. Left wing, Centre, Right wing etc.).

       

      I am wondering if there is a database where I could access this data? So far the best thing I came up with is manually creating the Excel spreadsheet from data available on Wiki, but this is obviously is quite time consuming, so I am wondering if there is a work around for getting this data.

       

      Thank you in advance!

       

      Best,

      Agata
