Voters in Ireland and the Czech Republic have been voting on the second day of European elections.

In the European Parliament 11 seats go to MEPs from the Republic of Ireland, while the Czech Republic gets 21 seats. The Czechs will also vote on Saturday.

The UK and the Netherlands held their elections on Thursday.

There will be no official results anywhere in the EU until 23:00 in Brussels (21:00 GMT) on Sunday. Most EU countries will vote on Sunday.

It is a co-legislator, with government ministers from the EU's 28 member states, in most policy areas.
