Far-Right Faction in EU Parliament Is Recreated as Bigger Force

The faction, which includes the nationalist parties of Italian Deputy Premier Matteo Salvini and France’s Marine Le Pen, will hold around 10% of the seats in the new European Union assembly compared with 5% before. The expansion results from vote increases for Salvini’s League and Le Pen’s National Rally as well as a decision by the Alternative for Germany party to join the euroskeptic alliance. AfD, which also won more seats, had been part of a separate EU Parliament group that includes Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party, yet another populist winner in the May 23-26 ballot.
