(CS) According to the first nation-wide projections, Prime Minister Juncker's party CSV is expected to lose three seats in parliament.

This would see the number of seats fall from 26 to 23. The LSAP is expected to remain stable (13 seats), with the Green party losing one seat leaving it with 6.

The DP would be the big winner of the elections, gaining four seats to reach 13. The ADR meanwhile would lose one seat and fall to three seats and “déi Lénk” would gain one seat to reach a total of two seats.

The DP at their election night HQ in Kirchberg cheered on the estimates as they were announced.

This would make a so-called Gambia coalition between the LSAP, the DP and the Greens possible, as they would reach 32 seats together.

Such a scenario would see the strongest party, the CSV, forced into the opposition.

The PID, the KPL and the Pirate Party would not make the cut to enter parliament.

However, 50 percent of votes remain to be counted in the centre, and 60 percent are yet to be counted in the south.
