  • Europe's Rising Far-right

    According to Reuters, Europe’s nationalist forces gained some ground at the European Parliament elections, but face an uphill task to unite behind common goals and lure other parties into disrupting the pro-EU majority’s policies. Spearheading that challenge is Italy’s Matteo Salvini, whose League party has become the driving eurosceptic force and wants to bring together like-minded parties scattered across several groups in the European Union legislature. Provisional results give more than 170 seats, or 23% of the 751-member assembly, to parties that sat in eurosceptic groups in the last parliament. That was up from 20%, but was a smaller gain than some had expected for the far-right and left pro-European parties with a firm majority still.
