Voices and views

The European people have spoken and again demonstrated the strength of our democracy. The highest turnout in 20 years, with high majority support for pro-EU parties.

European citizens sent strong message that they want to actively participate in shaping their future and the future of their Europe.

People of all political views turned out to vote in larger numbers than ever in recent history, highlighting their faith in the process of European democracy.

As always, a wide variety of voices will be represented in the European Parliament. There is a clear majority that supports the European Union and that will work as in the past to make our union stronger, more secure, happier and wealthier.

President Juncker will meet with EU leaders tomorrow to discuss the outcome and start the nomination process for heads of EU institutions.
