IFAT: How Could the European Elections Reshape Central Europe’s Role in the EU?

Our Zuzana Stuchlíková contributed to the latest issue of the 4:1 project of the Hungarian Institute for Foreign Affairs and Trade (IFAT), whose topic was "How Could the European Elections Reshape Central Europe’s Role in the EU?".

The results of the national vote, and more importantly the decisions of party leaders afterwards will likely influence the perception of the Czech Republic in the EU, as the three currently leading parties will probably have to (re)consider their affiliation to the European party families. ANO’s ALDE membership is crucial to Babiš’s perception as a pro-European politician. However, ALDE is often criticized for keeping him in the club, considering his many scandals and close alliance with other Central European leaders. If ALDE undergoes changes after the election (with potential arrival of En Marche) and FIDESZ would be forming a new group, Babiš might be facing a dilemma.
