      First EP seat projection shows collapse of the centrist coalition

      The European Parliament's first seat projection confirms a collapse of the grand coalition of centre-left and centre-right, DPA reported. The projection places the centre-right European People's Party at 173 seats and the Socialist and Democrats at 147, leaving them short of forming a majority in the 751-seat parliament. The figures are based on exit polls from 11 member states and pre-election opinion surveys from the other 17 countries.
