European elections 2019

The projected results for the new European Parliament show significant losses for the two main groups, the centre-right European People’s Party and the centre-left Socialists and Democrats.

They remain the largest groups but have lost their traditional majority in the European Parliament.

The Greens and Liberal groups have made gains, as well as the right-wing nationalist and populist groups.

The results for individual countries below are a mixture of projected and official figures, and are subject to change as more results are declared. Parties may also change which European party group they belong to.
