Avances de la ultraderecha en la elección del parlamento Europeo

By Jordi Bou

June 10, 2024 - Los grupos de centro han retenido una mayoría en el Parlamento Europeo, pero avances de partidos de ultraderecha en Francia y Alemania plantean interrogantes sobre cómo pueden las grandes potencias de la UE manejar la política en el bloque.

The European People’s Party (EPP) scored a clear victory, tightening its grip on the chamber even as far-right groups made major gains across the bloc.

The centre-right force is on track to have around 184 lawmakers in Parliament, a quarter of the 720 in the hemicycle, according to provisional data.

It is the only centrist party to have grown in this election: The centre-left Socialists and Democrats (S&D) remained stable, while the liberal Renew Europe group was decimated.

Making a risky gamble to try to reestablish his authority, Macron called a parliamentary election, with the first round on June 30.

Like Macron, German Chancellor Olaf Scholz also endured a painful night where his Social Democrats scored their worst result ever, suffering at the hands of the mainstream conservatives and hard right Alternative for Germany (AfD).

Meanwhile, Italian Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni saw her position strengthened by her arch-conservative Brothers of Italy group winning the most votes.
