ČT24 | EU elections

According to predictions, conservative right-wing parties are expected to gain strength in the upcoming European elections. How significant will their influence be? Or do they only have blackmail potential? Will the rhetoric change in traditional EU parties as well? Viktor Daněk, Deputy Director of EUROPEUM Institute, answered these questions on the programme "Pre-election Europe" on ČT24.

The composition of the European Parliament will undoubtedly change. Nationalist, far-right, and populist parties, which are often anti-immigration and against the Green Deal, are gaining strength. This will certainly impact the future Commission and its policies.
