The ruling Democratic Party (PD) has won Italy's EP elections, beating Grillo's anti-establishment M5S by a landslide, surveys suggest. A projection broadcast by SkyTG24, based on 50 percent of cast ballots, has the PD on 40.1 percent, against 22.5 percent for the M5S and 16.6 percent for Berlusconi's Forza Italia.
