Results of the European Elections

On 22 - 25 May millions of citizens across the European Union exercised their democratic right and made their voice count in the European Parliament elections.

According to provisional results the European People's Party (Christian Democrats) EPP won the most seats at the European Parliament or 213 (28,36%). Second came the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats (S&D) with 191 seats (25,43%). These two parties maintain their position of dominance with slightly over 50% of the seats in the European Parliament.

The outcomes differ significantly between Member States. These differences reflect the Union's mix of a pan-European political debate with specific national agendas. The turnout across the Member States also varied considerably and the average was 43,09%, similar to the 43% recorded in 2009.
