247. international my names you know. your company. with most votes in the fiercely contested parliament elections. parties along with the greens and liberals are set for big wins while projections show the centrist bloc losing its grip on parliament one in every 2 eligible voters also took to the polls the highest turnout in 2 decades.
it's bricked on those all important numbers then in italy material selvi nice right wing party beleaguered project to do in 33 percent of the vote in fronts marine le pen's nationalist rally is set to overtake president mccrum party with as much as 23 percent of the ballot austria's ruling center right people's party that's a story in itself also a surge in continental support there was a significant blow in neighboring germany too for the ruling coalition their share of the photon by iran 7 per cent so far so how is all this expected to shape the european parliament for the next 5 years what we're looking at a fragmented parliament with establishments losing ground to smaller parties and what all these dots are suggesting despite the gains made by the euro skeptic out of right leaning parties pro e.u. groups are still expected to hold on to run 2 thirds or so of the seats the biggest blow of the elections will be dealt the parliamentary run coalition of center left and right they're said to lose their 40 year long majority surely has more on from
paris. well europe's waking up after a night of change where we sued the established parties of the center right and the center losing quite a lot of ground in that election and that of course could spell trouble with that you run coalition is being too clueless to him which since its inception it means that they will now have to leach out to a much smaller parties if they want to keep that still reach of the european parliament on course they was a sujan vote for anti establishment parties across the block with parties like the national rally here in france and a leak in italy actually talking the polls in their own countries. the nice holiday not only took the polls it looks like it's projected to gauge around 28 seats in that this election
a couple of seats from 2014 and so the need speaking to the press after those results are coming in said that this was essentially the people in europe saying that they want to see anything different other than the your did you get your today's vote shows that the rules of europe are changing it's not just due to the choice of the italians but also of the french the germans the british the and gary and the poles and finns the swedes the danes a new europe is born. well here in france we saw muffy in love pens national rally party topping the polls of course they also took the poll back in 2014 this time very slow each down on their turnout from the last election but still a very big result here in france particular as many people were seeing this is being a referendum on president michel whose party came in 2nd place they would just pick to the post they are trying to brush this off as noticed by the losses they were
expect. but marking the pen is now calling for those anti establishment parties to form a grand law within the european parliament to be a stronger voice and she's calling for a new shake up of politics here in france the source the president has no other choice but to dissolve the national assembly and allow for a more democratic voting system in order to better represent this country's majority political opinion the feeding of traditional parties and the polarization between the national wryly party and the renaissance party confirms that the political scene is now split between nationalists and globalists and that's what dominates our political life there are also big wins for anti establishment ruling parties in countries such as poland and hungary. the ruling governing party in austria also talk to the polls that we've more than 30 percent of the vote
the chancellor besting kurt said he was very pleased with that result particularly as it comes at a difficult time for his government you are supposed to be facing a new confidence vote later today i know that a scandal hit the party just a week ago but despite that scandal it seems boodles of people in austria still turned out to offer him their support same you i'm usually not to the last 4 words but i'm almost speechless we expected a lot we were optimistic but this is a fantastic result this is never happened before we achieve the best results of all time with the biggest distance from 2nd place of all time it is simply i'm believing the other big surprise of the night was the green vote which is up significantly here in france and also in germany and the projection is that they will get around 70 seats which is quite a surge compared to 2014 up around 20 seats on that but the reality
is. the make up now of the european parliament will be very different to that that we've known for not just the last 5 years but pretty much since its inception and what that's going to do is it's going to make it very difficult for the old guard to continue to keep watch and to push things down that agenda. shows devinsky wrapping up things there 1st of all french politicians shock me are told us he believes that europe has now entered a pivotal new era well i would say that of course the big surprise is that the green party is going up very very broadly but it doesn't mean that it is enough to save the so-called system and of course we see that many skeptical bodies of one day election throughout europe and i think that we are facing a new product
a new era for europe but i don't see how they will solve the problems of europe the union is split and it will be very very difficult to find a compromise between qualities between let's say i don't know g.'s which are very opposite but i do believe that this europe the present europe is dead a little bit more in the story but across into the u.k. where the newly founded brags that party has heard what can only be described in the style machine my cleaning more votes than the tories only party combined breaking down the results here's a sollie. in the build up to this election all the polls are indicating that the briggs and polity would do well on the new before breaks in policy we should point out in fact they've won by far the most seats in those european elections for the u.k. and as you mentioned they're getting more than the conservatives and labor combined
and then lead for raj he's somebody who has been a really a figurehead not just in these elections but in the push leading up to that referendum in 2016 for the u.k. to leave the e.u. and he believes that the birds of quality control can go on and be successful in general elections if we do not leave the european union. then just as we've surprised people in these european elections we will go full would absolutely stunned them in the next general election there's a big wake up call here to westminster let's see whether they listen now the fortunes of the brags that party in exact opposite to the decimation of ukip and they went for the full 2014 elections having won 28 piece but since then they'd suffer the number of defections my number of votes counted it's shifting over to the briggs and polity and in fact we can have a breakdown of some of the more prominent leadership of that bribes party.
drugs that has been dominating the political sphere here in the u.k. to the point that perhaps votes is off fed up with it all and just want the politicians to get on with it now the 2 main parties here in the u.k. labor in the conservatives they had bad nights and tories of course are gearing up to try to get. a new leader in place and they're going through that process now it is also worth pointing out that while the briggs and party did well last night the leave parties in general did worse than remain parties combined but the issue that the remained party face is a splitting of the vote between the lib dems who came 2nd in these elections and labor the greens and so on including the s. and p.
who have done well in scotland so again while a very good night for programs and votes is on the birds and party in general it's not as clear cut to say that this would indicate that they would win any 2nd referendum if there was one to be held. in london or we heard from a professor of european law who says that for many u.k. voters nigel fur is the only political figure who could finally break that brings an impasse. many people were sad about the mess that the last 2 or 3. especially those who want to leave european union. are very disappointed with the conservatives. going around. and quite clearly mr ferrars also a very simple and straightforward message i think if you the number of people the percentage of people who actually voted for the party who want a 2nd reference the crucial question is what happens in labor will labor get off
the fence that has collapsed under them as somebody said and i think over the next 3 or 4 days if. we work it out. or break it looks set to take a temporary backseat in the u.k. as a new leadership race gets into full swing we look out the candidates vying to take over from theresa may a little later in the program. ok moving on to more world news south africa's newly inaugurated president. his country is entering a new euro but with his party divided he looks set to face and. one of the key problems the new president will face is the legacy of apartheid on the ensuring challenge of extreme inequality white people for instance currently represent 9 percent of south africa's population but over 70 percent of private
