I don’t think the count is until Sunday, with results on Sunday evening ( as most of the EU hold their elections on Sundays ?)
Which begs the question, why don't all countries vote on the same day since they're selecting representatives of the same legislative body?
Every country has their traditional voting days. It just happens to be the case that most European countries conduct their elections on a Sunday. Remember, Sunday evenings are when the results of the French & German presidential elections are usually called, because they traditionally vote on Sundays. The UK & Ireland are amongst a select number of outliers who vote on days other than Sunday. The UK has traditionally always been Thursdays, whilst Ireland has been Fridays.
True, but when it comes to European elections, every country is essentially a constituency (although five of them have multiple constituencies
), and I can't think of too many elections in which various constituencies vote on different days. After all, if EU members can't even agree to hold pan-EU elections on the same day, what hope is there for "an ever closer union."
But I suspect this is a topic for another place and another time.
