SIMPLIFIER ON EU ELECTIONS AND FAR RIGHT INFLUENCE



WHAT ARE THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT ELECTIONS?

The European Parliament elections are a crucial event where citizens of the European Union (EU) elect their representatives to the European Parliament. These elections influence the laws and policies across the EU.

WHAT WAS THE OUTCOME OF THE RECENT EU ELECTIONS?

The hard-right and nationalist right made gains in many parts of the EU, with voters concerned about migration, inflation, and the cost of environmental reforms. Despite these gains, the majority of seats in the EU Parliament remain with centrist parties.

WHY IS THE FAR-RIGHT GAINING INFLUENCE?

The far-right is gaining influence due to economic instability, rising nationalism, immigration issues, and skepticism towards the EU’s policies.

WHAT ARE THE MAIN CONCERNS OF FAR-RIGHT PARTIES?

Far-right parties are primarily concerned with:

• Immigration and asylum policies
• Economic policies, particularly those involving the EU budget and trade agreements
• National sovereignty and reducing EU integration

HOW COULD THE FAR-RIGHT INFLUENCE IMMIGRATION POLICIES?

The far-right advocates for stricter border controls, reduced immigrant rights, and stronger national security measures to control immigration.

WHAT IS THE IMPACT ON CLIMATE AND ENVIRONMENTAL POLICIES?

Far-right parties often oppose environmental regulations and initiatives aimed at combating climate change, favoring economic growth over environmental sustainability.

HOW DO FAR-RIGHT PARTIES VIEW AGRICULTURAL SUBSIDIES AND RURAL DEVELOPMENT?

They may support reforms favoring small-scale, sustainable farming over large-scale industrial agriculture, and advocate for increased national control over agricultural policies.

WHAT COULD BE THE IMPACT ON TRADE AND ECONOMIC POLICIES?

The far-right’s rise could lead to more protectionist trade policies, potentially hindering free trade agreements and causing economic fragmentation within the EU.

WHAT DOES THE FUTURE HOLD IF FAR-RIGHT PARTIES GAIN MORE POWER?

If far-right parties gain more power, there could be significant changes to the EU’s structure, potentially leading to reduced cooperation among member states and a shift towards more nationalistic policies.
