EU Election Results 2014

Low voter turnout at the EU Election Results 2014

France’s National Front and Britain’s UKIP were among Eurosceptic parties to make big gains in the European Parliament elections.

Both parties, according to preliminary results, topped the vote in their respective countries.

Anti-EU parties also polled strongly in Denmark and Italy.

The trend, though, was bucked in Greece, where anti-austerity sentiment is thought to have driven radical-left party Syriza to victory.

Voter turnout is estimated to have been the same as 2009, at around 43%.
