On Sunday, May 26, elections to the European Parliament took place. The vote was higher than anticipated in sociological research prior to the vote, with 49.02% of Romanians expressing their option (compared with 39.42% at the legislative elections in 2016). The vote was marked by controversies as many Romanians from abroad were unable to vote, the turnout in the diaspora being a record one.
According to the interim results announced by the Central Electoral Bureau (and based on data from 97% of the polling stations), the National Liberal Party (PNL) would rank first, with 26.79%, followed by the Social Democrat Party (PSD), with 23.38% and the 2020 Alliance (USR+PLUS) 21.41%. The Pro Romania Party with 6.61%, the National Union of Hungarians from Romania (UDMR) with 5.45% and the Popular Movement Party (PMP) with 5.66% would also enter the EP, while the junior government party, ALDE, would likely not enter the EP. The votes received by the parties which will not enter the EP will be redistributed to the ones that will be represented in the EP.
