The European elections held last May 26th marked an important break. For the first time since the founding of the European Parliament the two major groups, the European People’s Party and the Alliance of Socialists and Democrats, do not have the majority of the seats. This election saw an increase in the fragmentation of the vote, with an increase in seats for Greens, Liberals and Euro-skeptical Nationalists. The victory of “non-mainstreams” parties in some of the main countries of the Union, now places Europe before new challenges.
Action Institute provides an overview of the main analysis and comments regarding the last European elections with a particular focus on the analysis of the vote and the composition of the next parliamentary majority, possible consequences on the national balances and the configuration of the next European Commission.
