Elections underway for European Parliament where Euroskeptic candidates expect to gain ground
LONDON - Voting has begun in Britain and the Netherlands for European Parliament elections in which Euroskeptic parties stand to be the likely beneficiaries of a disillusioned and apathetic electorate.


Some 400 million Europeans are eligible to vote, with national polls being held Thursday through Sunday.


More than 16,000 candidates from 953 parties or lists - from greens to feminists to the far-right - are vying for the legislature's 751 seats. (Associated Press)
