Far right, Euroskeptics make big gains in EU vote

Published: 05.25.14, 23:34 / Israel News

Exit polls show the far right and Euroskeptics have made sweeping gains in European Parliament elections, signaling a major political shift toward parties that want to slash the European Union's powers or abolish it altogether.


Polls in recent days had predicted Euroskeptics could snag as many as a third of the seats in the EU's 751-seat legislature in the vote ending Sunday.


One of the most significant winners appeared to be France's far-right National Front. Two polling companies said Sunday that the party, led by Marine Le Pen, was outright winner in France with one-quarter of the popular vote. (AP)
