The aim of the paper is to inspect the relationship between institutional design settings and political representation at one hand, and the consequences of representation on European voters’ political behaviour on the other. This concentrates on the impact off different features of electoral systems on political representation conceptualized as congruence, as well as the effects of types of political parties (niche or mainstream) and individual level predictors, such as political sophistication and ideological consistency. Congruence is measured as the degree of matching of the common policy preferences of citizens and parties as indicated by the 2009 EU Profiler and “014 EUvox Voting Advice Applications.
