Latvia's European election results published at last

Following a protracted an arguably pointless wait of 28 hours since the closing of polls in Latvia on Saturday for the 2024 European Parliament elections, the results were finally published as Sunday turned into Monday.

The intention for the late-night release of the results was supposed to be a simultaneous publication of results from across the 27-member bloc, with voting continuing into Sunday night in some countries. But for Latvia, the long wait for something tangible from 20:00 on Saturday to 00:00 on Monday morning tended to create a sense of anticlimax rather than excitement.

At least the intervening hours had allowed turnout to be confirmed as 33.82%, only fractionally up on the 2019 turnout of 33.53%, suggesting intense advertising campaigns to urge participation had little effect.

As far as the results are concerned, Latvia's nine European Parliament mandates will be distributed as follows according to the provisional results:

New Unity (Jaunā Vienotība) – 2 seats (Valdis Dombrovskis, Sandra Kalniete)
National Alliance (Nacionālā apvienība) – 2 seats (Roberts Zīle, Rihards Kols)
Latvia First (Latvija pirmajā vietā) – 1 seat (Vilis Krištopans)
Harmony (Saskaņa) – 1 seat (Nils Ušakovs)
United List (Apvienotais saraksts) – 1 seat (Reinis Pozņaks)
Progressives (Progresīvie) – 1 seat (Mārtiņš Staķis)
For Latvia's Development (Latvijas attīstībai) -1 seat (Ivars Ijabs)

Thus it seems Latvia will send only one woman to Brussels among its nine MEPs.

New Unity took the lead with 25.07% of the voters' support, followed by National Alliance with 22.08%, For Latvian Development with 9.36%, United List (8.18%), Progressives (7.42%), Harmony (7.14%), and Latvia First (6.16%).
