(ANSA-AP) - BRUSSELS, MAY 27 - Updated election results released by the Croatian election authorities say the ruling conservatives and an opposition center-left party have won an equal number of seats in the future European Parliament. With 99.8% percent of the ballots counted, the results early Monday showed the Croatian Democratic Union winning 22.7% of the vote, followed by the center-left Social Democratic Party with 18.7%, or 4 seats each. Initially, the ruling HDZ party was projected to win 5 seats. Prime Minister Andrej Plenkovic said the party missed about 1,000 votes for the fifth seat and declared that "tomorrow, we will see what we could have done better." A Croatian far-right coalition is third with 8.5%, or one seat. The fourth is an independent list with 7.8% support.

The populist party Zivi Zid, allied with the Italian M5S, won 5.6% of votes. (ANSA-AP).
