Traditional parties see losses in European Parliament election


eu breaking world news

(Worthy News) - The European Union has elected a new Parliament that draws less heavily from the center-right and center-left parties that have traditionally composed the majority.

Returns show that centrists dropped from 53% to 43% of the Parliament, while euroskeptic and green parties made gains. This will be the first time in decades that the center-right European People’s Party and the center-left Socialists and Democrats will not control the majority bloc.

Euroskeptics captured about 24% of the parliament’s 751 seats — an all-time high, but not an enormous bounce from 2014 where they captured about 22% of the seats. Green and pro-environment parties performed well in a number of countries, too. [ Source: Washington Examiner (Read More...) ]
