Other developments to look out for tonight, apart from UK #EuropeanElection results and the #Brexit implications: /1
Germany: Angela Merkel’s CDU party bracing itself for losses while coalition partner Social Democrats fear a beating. If this materialises, could the German gov collapse? The two parties have a meeting scheduled tomorrow morning /2
Also in Germany, watch the results of far right AfD. Have they peaked? We at BBC not reporting exit polls /3
#EuropeanElection2019 results in France will also affect the national government. #Macron has been wobbly at home and on his European agenda. Today’s vote is viewed as a judgement on his performance to date /4
Also in France, if nationalist Marine Le Pen performs strongly, it will boost the voice of the right wing populist group that hopes to sit together in the new European Parliament. The other ‘star’ in their crown would be Italy’s deputy PM Matteo Salvini /5
Italy: Salvini is hoping to head the biggest single party in the European Parliament. If he performs strongly today, he will be tempted to try to force early elections in Italy .. He’d love to be prime minister /6
The Greens: They’re hoping to be kingmakers in the new European Parliament. Are Europe’s voters as engaged in the environment as they believe? /7
Will this be seen as the night of Europe’s populist right? Or a vote for change? The night Europeans make clear politics have changed for good. Where, instead of majority vote for centre right and centre left as is traditionally the case in EU, voters now looking elsewhere /8
