UE: Guía de las elecciones europeas infographic

Batalla por el corazón de Europa

Graphic News

May 23-26, 2019 -- Los votantes van a las urnas para elegir un nuevo parlamento que representará a más de 500m de personas en 28 estados miembros de la UE. Los sondeos indican que los grupos centristas dominantes perderán su mayoría de escaños, de 40 años, ya que los partidos euroescépticos van ganando terreno.

The signs are that the centre-left Alliance of Socialists and Democrats (S&D) and the centre-right European People’s
Party (EPP) will lose their combined majority and will need the support of other groups (most probably Liberals and Greens) to form a majority coalition.

Eurosceptic and anti-immigration parties look set to make the greatest gains. Some of these parties intend to form a new group, the European Alliance of Peoples and Nations, after the election.

French President Emmanuel Macron will be looking for a show of strength for his La République En Marche (LREM) to buttress his reform agenda after months struggling with the Yellow Vests protests.

With Brexit delayed amidst gridlock and indecision in the UK Parliament, the British electorate will have a chance to weigh in at the ballot box for the first time in two years.

Whatever the outcome, the European Parliament will play a big role in shaping the EU’s next five years, as the bloc grapples with faltering economic growth, climate change, indebted banks, migration, the rise of China, an erratic U.S. president, and of course Brexit.

NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era, coming soon…

And it will be worth the wait! The Graphic News website is undergoing a complete redesign. The new site will not only see improvements in terms of speed and user experience, but will also include many new features. For example, existing subscribers will be able to manage their accounts online via a group dashboard, and add selected graphics to lists for project planning (and which can be shared across the group).

Existing users will need to register individually - we’ll be sending instructions to our main contacts at each group and will be on hand to help you through the process, which we hope will be seamless!
