The governing Socialist party won with 33.4% of the vote, an emphatic victory for Prime Minister Antonio Costa and a boost to his chances of re-election when the country votes on 6 October. He looks to have increased the number of seats from 8 to 9.

The centre-right PSD came 2nd with 22% and 6 seats, the same as in 2014. Its EPP partner, the CDS kept its one seat.

The Left Bloc received 9.8% and doubled its seats to 2, with the PCP communists party also on 2 (one less than in 2014)

The Green wave also hit Portugal with the animal rights PAN party scoring a surprising 5;1% and electing its first MEP who will sit with the Greens.
