The first preliminary results from Austria have been released after the polling stations closed at 17h. They are based on the estimations after 46% of votes were counted.

According to these results, ÖVP stays the main party with 27.1%, SPÖ remains in second place with 24.8%. FPÖ is third with 20.1% ahead of Die Grünen who reached 14.6%. The estimations show that for the first time the NEOS party, reaching 8.3%, will send an MEP to the European Parliament.

The other campaigning lists did not manage to reach the necessary threshold of 4% of votes.

These are only preliminary results and could differ from the final results.
