The National Rally in France, Fratelli d’Italia in Italy, the FPÖ in Austria and the AfD in Germany: the success of these parties in the European elections is fueling discussions.

Results which also deserve attention.

In the European Parliament, two groups are home to radical right and nationalist groups: that of the European Conservatives and Reformists (CRE), which at this stage brings together 73 elected representatives (+4), and Identity and Democracy (ID), with 58 seats (+ 9). But around a hundred seats, between the “non-registered” and the new parties, are still without a label and are the subject of intense negotiations these days.
