The European Times News aims to cover news that matter to increase the awareness of citizens all around geographical Europe.

Provisional European election results can only be published after 23.00 CEST, when the last voting polls in Italy have closed. Before, Parliament will publish a first set of available national estimates around 18.15 CEST, and a first projection of the new Parliament is expected around 20.15-20.30 CEST (indicative time), based on national estimates, exit polls and pre-electoral voting intentions.

A second seat projection, at around 23.15-23.45 CEST (indicative time), will include the first provisional results from some EU member states, and estimates for the rest.

Updated projections will follow, as Parliament’s services receive information from national authorities. The last updated projection is expected at around 01.00 CEST.

Find here a detailed schedule of estimates and provisional results. All data will be available on the official election results website.
