Results of the European Parliament elections are announced

Wednesday 29 May 2019

Following the elections between 23 and 26 May, 751 MEPs from 28 Member States have been elected to the European Parliament.

Based on a combination of confirmed results and projections, the European Parliament website, as at midday on 29 May 2019, estimated that the breakdown of MEPs by parliamentary grouping would be as follows:

European Grouping

Number of seats

Percentage of votes

EPP - Group of the European People's Party (Christian Democrats)

178

23.70%

S&D - Group of the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats

153

20.37%

ALDE&R - Group of the Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe

105

13.98%

Greens/EFA - Group of the Greens/European Free Alliance

9.19%

The Parliament will meet for the first time in plenary in July 2019 to induct the newly elected MEPs, during which time the members will elect their President.

The next step in the process will be for a candidate (likely to be the EPP Spitzkandidat Manfred Weber) to be put forward as EU Commissioner, subject to confirmation by the European Parliament, followed by the selection of the Council of Commissioners for different areas of work. The official end of the term of the Juncker Commission is October 2019.

Alzheimer Europe will now work to re-establish the European Alzheimer’s Alliance (EAA), work with other civic society and patient organisations to identify members supportive to social, health and research matters, and engage with members who signed the pledge to encourage them to help push dementia as a priority area in future EU work.
