Extrema direita avança nas eleições para o Parlamento Europeu

By Jordi Bou

June 10, 2024 - Os grupos centristas mantiveram a maioria no Parlamento Europeu,
mas os ganhos dos partidos de extrema direita em França e na Alemanha suscitam dúvidas sobre o papel das grande potências na política do bloco.

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.
