With the results of the scrutiny and the additional votes that have been known in the last few hours, the Historical Pact would win at least three new seats. Going from 16 to 19.

- “The EU EOM wants to point out that the discrepancy between the results of the pre-count for the Senate and those produced by this first stage of the scrutiny has been unusually large. Above all, for some parties and coalitions.
- “The design of the E-14 forms is extremely complex and very prone to errors.”
- “The EU EOM has also identified numerous errors in the transcription of the E-14 in the scrutiny phase, which it has brought to the attention of the Registrar’s Office.”
