The election on 14 October saw the current 3 party government coalition of Liberals, Greens and Socialists returned to power, with a narrow majority of 31 seats out of 60. Although this was a small drop on their previous tally ( 32 seats) it was enough to keep the single largest party, the CSV (which sits with the EPP) out of power once again. The CSV lost 2 seats and recorded one of its worst results. The biggest winners were the Green Party, which gained 3 seats and who supported the continuation of the 3-party coalition rather than look for a deal with CSV. The other governing parties saw small losses, the DP of Prime Minister Xavier Bettel was down one seat and the Socialist Workers Party lost three seats, continuing the downward trend for Socialist parties across Europe.

With only 6 seats to play for there are few changes likely, with the CSV certain to win 2 seats and the governing coalition parties, Socialist, Democratic party (Liberals) and Greens all due to win one seat each. The fight over the 6th seat could see a new party enter the EP, such as the ADR (Alternative Democratic Reform party who would sit with the ECR, Volt (a new pan-European party), the Pirate party, or even a 2nd seat for the Greens
