European elections: Far-right wins, centrist alliance losses | France News


The face of Europe‘s parliament is changing.

The traditional power blocs of the centre-right and centre-left that have dominated for decades lost seats, as populists, greens and liberals surged.

Nationalism and fears over immigration fuelled gains for populist parties in France, Hungary and Italy where Matteo Salvini’s far-right party won more than 30 percent of the vote.
