EU Elections Overview: Far-Right Gains and Major Political Shifts

The recent EU elections have seen significant political shifts across Europe. In France, far-right support surged with Marine Le Pen’s National Rally positioning Jordan Bardella as a future prime minister. Germany's far-right Alternative for Germany party excluded its scandal-hit candidate from the European Parliament delegation, and Sweden saw a decline in far-right support in favor of the Greens.
The recent EU elections have marked significant political shifts across Europe.

In France, President Emmanuel Macron rejected his Prime Minister's resignation offer following a surge in far-right support.

Marine Le Pen's National Rally (RN) triumphed over Macron’s central alliance, positioning 28-year-old Jordan Bardella as a potential future prime minister.

Bardella, who joined the National Front at 16, was strategically appointed leader to facilitate Le Pen’s 2027 presidential bid.

In Germany, the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party secured 15.9% of the vote but excluded scandal-hit candidate Maximilian Krah from the European Parliament delegation.

Chancellor Olaf Scholz expressed concern over the rise of far-right tendencies.

Meanwhile, Sweden bucked the trend with the far-right Sweden Democrats experiencing a decline in support, giving rise to the Greens and other parties.

In Spain, following poor election results, Labour Minister Yolanda Diaz stepped down as leader of the left-wing Sumar alliance.

The current EU Parliament now comprises parties like the centre-right European People’s Party (EPP), the centre-left Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats (S&D), and Eurosceptic groups like the European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR).
