Upheaval in French Parliamentary Elections - French voters reject far-right

After finishing first in the opening round of France's parliamentary elections, Le Pen's far-right National Assembly not only failed to secure an outright majority in the second round, but finished third.

The dam in France held - the French guard towards the penetration on the extreme right held. After finishing first in the opening round of France's parliamentary elections on July 7, Marie Le Pen's far-right National Assembly not only failed to secure an outright majority in the second round, but finished third, defying predictions that the extreme the right-wing party will take power in France after the results of the first round. The left-wing coalition New Popular Front (NPF) surprisingly emerged as the winner, Emmanuel Macron's Together alliance came second, and the National Assembly remains third after the last round and is estimated to have won between 138 and 145 seats along with the conservative Les Républicains. Le Pen's party needed 289 seats to win an absolute majority in the lower house of parliament. After the last round she fell much lower than this.

After the latest analysis today, the New Popular Front (NPF) will have 182 MPs, Emmanuel Macron's Together alliance 168, and the National Assembly (RN) and allies 143. If these results receive official confirmation, according to analysts, France will have an unstable parliament divided on three large blocs with very different platforms and no tradition to cooperate.

Europe's "foreigners out!" generation is coming: Why young people are voting for the far right

The historic success of the radical right in the last elections for the European Parliament may have come as a shock, as it shook the two most important governments in the EU.

But it shouldn't surprise anyone who has paid attention to the bitter mood among many young people on the continent, who not only hold hard-line anti-immigrant views, but seem to express them more publicly than ever.

In Germany, the share of young people who voted for the AfD jumped between the last European Parliament elections in 2019 and this election (by 11 percent among voters aged between 24 and 30). In France, Marine Le Pen's National Rally party won about 30 percent of the youth vote nationally, an increase of 10 percent compared to 2019.

Today, European elites are challenged to assess the consequences of a youth-led shift to the right in the EU. In France, the Bardel generation will go to the polls again on June 30 and July 7 to elect a new national parliament in two rounds. The snap election, called by Macron, will show whether the shock success of the National Assembly last week was an outpouring of the protest vote or a seismic shift in the country's politics, cementing the far-right party as the leading political force. In Germany, the poor performance of the three parties in Olaf Scholz's ruling coalition did not trigger snap elections, but could mean a death sentence for the government.

Whatever happens in the next few weeks and months, young far-right voters will shape European politics for years, if not decades. Political loyalties formed at a young age often last a lifetime. Europe's "strangers out" generation may have arrived in a wave; and that wave is unlikely to subside anytime soon.

The EC adopted the EU Budget Proposal for 2025 - 2.2 billion earmarked for IPA 3 and 500 million for the Western Balkans Growth Plan

The European Commission adopted the EU budget proposal for 2025, which amounts to 199.7 billion euros, the executive vice-president of the EC in charge of economy in the interest of the people, Valdis Dombrovskis, informed today.

As reported by the MIA correspondent from Brussels, from the total funds in the EU Budget for the next year, 2.2 billion euros are intended for the Instrument for Pre-Accession Assistance (IPA III), and 500 million euros for the Mechanism for the Implementation of the Growth Plan of The Western Balkans, as part of the item to support European partners and the interests of the Union in the world.

- The draft budget for 2025 directs funds where they can make the biggest difference, in cooperation and in line with the needs of EU member states and our partners around the world, and to make Europe more resilient and fit for the future for the benefit of its citizens and EU businesses, noted Dombrovskis.

The achievement of such goals will be ensured by encouraging green and digital transitions, by creating new jobs and at the same time strengthening Europe's strategic autonomy and its global role.

The draft budget foresees continued support for the countries of the Western Balkans, for Syrian refugees in Turkey and the wider region of the Middle East, for the countries of the southern neighborhood of the EU intended to deal with migration, as well as for providing stable and predictable support for Ukraine.

It is planned that the annual budget of the EU will be supplemented with about 72 billion euros intended for the fulfillment of the political priorities of the Union, according to the changes made in February of this year in the Multiannual financial framework of the bloc until 2027.

EU leaders did not agree on the heads of the Union's institutions

The leaders of the European Union (EU) at the meeting on June 17 failed to agree on the appointment of new heads of the European institutions.

The outgoing President of the European Council, Charles Michel, confirmed the lack of an agreement. "It is our duty by the end of June to agree on the candidates for top positions in the EU and the strategic agenda," Michel said at the end of a working dinner of European leaders.

The heads of state and government had to agree in principle on the names for which there was already an informal agreement.

However, everything changed when the leaders of those countries or governments, coming from the European People's Bloc, asked for a share in the position of President of the European Council.

The President of the European Council is elected by the leaders of the EU for a period of two and a half. According to several sources from the meeting, the European People's Party requested that the mandate of the President of the European Council be divided into two parts of two and a half years, whereby the People's Party will get one of the mandates.

It seems that this was the main stumbling block and the reason why the leaders did not reach an agreement.
