European Parliament Elections; Ballots on the Last Day of Voting

europ

People across the European union have cast their ballots on the last day of voting for the European parliament elections, with early indications suggesting that the bloc’s only directly-elected body is shaping up to be more fragmented.

Provisional results showed that the Centre-right European people’s party (EPP) and the Centre-left progressive alliance of socialists and democrats (S&D) together had the most seats, but not enough for a combined majority.

 It was gathered that the greens, liberals and Eurosceptics – including far-right parties in countries such as France and Italy also made gains.

According to preliminary figures from across all 28 member states, the turnout was at the highest in 20 years, at 50.5 percent.

 The last time Europeans cast their vote, in 2014, turnout stood 42.6 percent.
