The first official provisional results in Luxembourg elections show the Christian Democrat party of long-serving Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker has easily remained the biggest party and the first choice to form a new coalition government.

According to the first projection with more than half of polling stations counted, Juncker's CSV will drop almost 5 points from the 38 percent of the 2009 elections, but remains well ahead of both Socialist coalition partner LSAP and the opposition Liberal DP, which both were close to 20 percent of the vote.

Juncker, who is the longest-serving government leader in the 28-nation European Union, could both form a center-left or center-right government, or face a grand coalition against him of Liberals-Socialist-Greens.
