European Parliament elections…more than 100 parties competing for leadership – Algerian Dialogue


Voting will take place on Sunday in about twenty countries to choose members of the European Parliament, at the end of an electoral marathon that may reshape the political balances in the European Parliament.

More than 360 million Europeans were invited to cast their votes to choose 720 members of the European Parliament, in elections that began in the Netherlands on Thursday and in other countries on Friday and Saturday.

The bulk of the votes will be cast in the European Union on Sunday, as France, Germany, Poland and Spain open voting centers, while Italy holds a second day of voting.

European Parliament groups

The European Parliament is one of the three main entities of the European Union, along with the European Council, which remains the highest body in the bloc, and includes heads of states and governments, and the Council of the European Union, which is also known as the Ministerial Council, which includes specialized ministerial representatives from each country.

Each member state has a number of parliamentary seats proportional to its population. Members within the Union are divided into parliamentary teams and groups based on the parliamentarians’ orientations and political and ideological affiliations.

After the elections in Europe, political parties will seek to strengthen existing alliances and form new ones.

Most political parties in the European Parliament form coalitions with each other, forming larger groups with those who share the same ideology. This year’s elections are expected to shake the political landscape of Parliament, with expectations of an increase in support for far-right parties, which will strengthen nationalist and far-right groups.

At the same time, new parties in the European Parliament will be looking for groups to join, and some re-elected parties are also looking for new alliances.

Opinion polls expect the Liberals and Greens to lose their seats, reducing the majority of the center-right and center-left and complicating efforts to pass new EU laws or increase European integration.

Many voters have been hit by the cost of living crisis, have concerns about immigration and the cost of transitioning to renewable energy, and are disturbed by rising geopolitical tensions, including the war in Ukraine, according to Reuters.

It appears that the European Green Party will be among the biggest losers in the elections.

The party faces a backlash from many families, farmers and the agricultural sector, which is under severe pressure due to expensive EU policies that limit carbon dioxide emissions.

The outlook for the liberal “Renew Europe” bloc is also bleak, given expectations that the far-right National Rally party will defeat Emmanuel Macron’s party in France.
