Elderly people leave voting booths during the European Parliamentary elections and the second round of the local administration elections in Athens, Greece on May 25, 2014. EU parliamentary voting got underway in Greece, Romania and Lithuania on Sunday, the final day of a massive process expected to give eurosceptic parties a boost.

BRUSSELS (AFP) - EU parliamentary voting got underway in Greece, Romania and Lithuania on Sunday, the final day of a massive process expected to give eurosceptic parties a boost.

In all, 21 EU member states, including France, Germany and Italy head to the polls Sunday to end four days of voting which began in Britain and the Netherlands on Thursday.

No results will be announced until all polling is finished at 2100 GMT.

If opinion polls prove correct, the eurosceptic parties could treble their presence to around 100 seats in the new 751-seat EU assembly.
