Following Thursday’s voting by the British and the Dutch, today Irish and Czech citizens are voting to elect European Parliament deputies.
Voting in the Czech Republic is spread on two days with the aim that voters’ turnout will be much bigger than that of five years ago when only 18% of the electorate voted.
In Ireland, voting is characterised by Brexit-linked tension as a bigger voting turnout will increase the chance of a referendum on whether the U.K. should exit the EU.
Following yesterday’s voting in The Netherlands, first indications point to a Labour victory and an increase in support for the eurosceptics. Official results, however, are not expected before 11pm on Sunday.
Tomorrow, it is the turn of the electorate in Latvia, Malta and Slovakkia to vote in EP elections, while the rest of citizens have the right to vote on Sunday.
Some 400 million Europeans are eligible to vote in the 28 countries to elect 751 European Parliament members.
