The dawn and dusk of left-radical Europe

On the eve of the elections to the European Parliament, the main attention of European politicians and observers is traditionally focused on the prospects of the extreme right-wing parties, for which the campaign itself looks like a victorious march. At the same time, the analysis of the prospects of the left-radical flank demonstrates absolutely opposite trends. Judging by the results of the recent parliamentary and regional elections and the mass of intra-party conflicts, this process did not begin yesterday, but today it is becoming more and more active at jet speed. Certainly, the left-radical parties and politicians will not completely leave the political scene and will still remain in the EP political group “European Union of the Left” (The Left), but it is hard not to notice the serious reduction of their positions: even according to the most optimistic sociological forecasts, the already small group of the European Parliament risks losing 5-8 seats in the new convocation.

With this material Ascolta continues to study the political mood in the European Union against the background of preparations for the next elections to the European Parliament, and also analyzes the prospects of left-radical parties and their leaders to form their own group of influence in the new political realities.
