European elections 2024: publication of results and other information for media


The first provisional results of the European elections will be announced tonight around 23.15-23.45 CEST in the European Parliament hemicycle in Brussels.

  • Last-minute briefings at 11.00 and 17.00 CEST
  • Official start of election night programme at 17.30 CEST
  • First estimated composition of new Parliament around 20.15-20.30 CEST, first provisional election results around 23.15-23.45 CEST
  • Group leaders and lead candidates will give their reactions to the media during the evening

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.

Media briefings at 11.00 and 17.00

Both briefings can be followed in person and via webstreaming.
