The first projected results on how many seats each party group would have in the next European Parliament have been released.

The leftist European United Left and Nordic Green Block take 46 seats so far.
The S & D social democrats get 148 seats.
The Greens have 68 seats
The liberal ALDE group would receive 79 seats.
The center-right European Peoples Party, the biggest group, takes 173 seats.
The Eurosceptic conservatives, the ECR, take 62 seats
The populists, the EFDD, take 57 seats
The ENF have 59 seats.
And the remaining 59 seats go to other smaller parties.
