Far-right's Struggles in European Politics: Le Pen's Defeat and Meloni's Dilemma

The far-right Rassemblement National (RN) party, led by Marine Le Pen, faced setbacks in both the French National Assembly and the European Parliament, failing to achieve its goal of coming to power due to the 'Republican Front' and internal scandals.

Attempts to form the 'Patriots for Europe' group were met with resistance, highlighting the continued challenges faced by right-wing populist parties in Europe. The exclusion of the AfD from Le Pen's group in the EU Parliament and Italy's Meloni facing a pragmatic choice after Le Pen's defeat underline the complexities of far-right politics.

As forces on both left and right battle for Europe's political soul, the continent grapples with intense polarization and identity-based dilemmas that shape the future political landscape.

In Europe as in France, Le Pen’s party still trapped behind ‘cordon sanitaire’

Politics
The far-right Rassemblement National (RN) party in France, led by Marine Le Pen and Jordan Bardella, has seen a significant increase in its representation in the European Parliament and the French National Assembly. However, the party's hopes of coming to power were dashed in the recent elections, as the formation of an effective 'Republican Front' revealed that the far right still frightens the majority of French people. The party has faced scandals related to racist, homophobic, and anti-Semitic comments by its representatives, and its attempts to form a new group in the European Parliament, the Patriots for Europe, have been met with resistance from other political groups.

No Power Takeover: The Failure of the Rassemblement National

Politics
The Rassemblement National (RN) was able to significantly increase its number of seats in both the European Parliament and the National Assembly in the recent elections in France, but failed to achieve its goal of taking power. Despite the high number of votes, the party was pushed back by a "Republican Front", which shows that the majority of the French are still afraid of the right-wing populists. Internal scandals and controversies led to a loss of image, so that a complete renewal of the movement is now being initiated. The RN also had to accept setbacks at the European level, as the pro-European forces prevented the participation of the right-wing populist faction "Patriots for Europe" in parliamentary committees.

Right-wing extremists in the EU Parliament: Le Pen still has no desire for the AfD - n-tv.de

Politics
The AfD was unable to join the 'Patriots for Europe' group in the EU Parliament, as Marine Le Pen's party Rassemblement National (RN) and the Italian Lega in particular rejected the AfD's admission. Instead, the AfD founded its own group 'Europe of Sovereign Nations' with 28 members from nine countries. The AfD had previously been excluded from the 'Identity and Democracy' group after one of its top candidates trivialized the SS. The AfD is now trying to cite other reasons for its isolation in the EU Parliament, but observers see the cause in the party's too openly right-wing radical orientation.

Le Pen's Defeat is Meloni's Victory

Politics
The defeat of Le Pen's right-wing populist party Rassemblement National in the French parliamentary elections presents Italy's post-fascist Prime Minister Meloni with a dilemma: Should she pursue a pragmatic approach or follow "identity-based relapses"? Meloni must decide whether to take a more radical, identity-based stance or seek dialogue with the next European majority. Her faction of the European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR) has become the third-largest force in the EU Parliament, but the pro-European coalition theoretically offers Ursula von der Leyen a safe majority.
