Provisional results, seats




Editor’s note (2:05pm GMT, June 10th 2024): This page has been updated with the provisional results of the election.
After four days of voting, the EU has published a first projection of the results for its election of a new European Parliament. As polls predicted, the centre-right group known as the European People’s Party, or EPP, is once again the largest; it is projected to win 186 seats. The centre-left Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats (S&D) looks set to win about 134 seats. But the hard right has gained ground in some countries.
The Economist is tracking the contest. Here you can find a breakdown of the results, analysis of what’s at stake and short guides to each group in the Parliament. And if you are interested in contests elsewhere, see our Trump/Biden poll tracker, our British election tracker and more at our election tracker hub.
The hard-right Identity & Democracy (ID) group is projected to win 58 seats. It failed to pull ahead of the European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR), a group of soft Eurosceptics. Nor did it beat and replace the liberal Renew Europe group, who remain as the third-biggest force in parliament. That was partly because the ID group ejected one of its biggest members, Alternative for Germany (AfD), at the end of May. Maximilian Krah, one of the AfD’s candidates, had suggested that not all officers in Nazi Germany were war criminals. In 2016, the AfD was expelled by the ECR, who have also gained seats and come fourth in this election.
