European Parliament elections 2024 – a pessimistic forecast for European liberals

One of the intrigues of the upcoming elections to the European Parliament in 2024, in addition to the predicted success of the extreme right-wing parties, is the predicted fiasco of the Greens and Liberals. We will discuss the chances of the Greens later, but for now we will focus our attention on the liberal political group Renew, which is in the EP in a “grand coalition” with the European People’s Party (EPP) and the Progressive Alliance of Socialists and Democrats (S&D). 

It is worth noting that the upcoming elections to the European Parliament will not be an easy walk for the Liberals. According to most analysts, the group “Renewing Europe” will suffer significant electoral losses. Most likely, it will lose about 20 seats in the European Parliament and will probably get 81 seats in the European Parliament (today the Renew Europe group has 101 seats). Renew’s success in the 2019 European Parliament elections will therefore remain only a pleasant memory for the Liberals. And the reason for this decline lies primarily in the changing political climate in the EU countries, which reduces the popularity, including the liberal trend. 

In this article Ascolta continues to study the electoral mood in Europe in the run-up to the elections to the European Parliament. Against the background of a steady strengthening of the positions of far-right political forces, the piece analyzes the prospects of maintaining the influence of liberal parties, which are represented in the European Parliament by the group “Renewing Europe” (“Renew”).
