European Parliament fails to elect President in the first round of voting

Yeniavaz.com informs citing the "BBC" that this is evidenced by the results of the voting held on Wednesday morning.

A total of 662 votes were counted. Moreover, the best result was demonstrated by Italian candidate David Sassoli, gaining 325 votes, which is less than 50% + 1 vote needed to win the first round.

"No one has gained an absolute majority, the second round has been announced," the outgoing President of European Parliament Antonio Tajani said.
