    The smiles belie the upset for Luxembourg Prime Minister Jean-Claude Juncker who has suffered significant losses in the country's elections on Sunday. Though his centre-right party will have 23 of parliament's 60 seats, it is down three from 2009.

    It will come as a blow to the EU's longest standing premier, who has served 18 years at the head of the Grand Duchy.
