Voting for the EU parliament has been taking place on the small island of Malta, where it coincided with local elections.

However, turnout is expected to be much lower than the 82 percent recorded for the last EU elections in 2004, which were Malta’s first after joining the bloc. More than 30 candidates are vying for five seats in the EU parliament. The candidate who comes closest to being elected will be given the sixth seat allocated to Malta when the Lisbon Treaty comes into force.
