Rise of Right-Wing Parties in European Parliament

The recent formation of the 'Europe of Sovereign Nations' group in the European Parliament, led by Germany's far-right AfD party, signifies a consolidation of right-wing forces. This new faction, comprising members from multiple countries, aims to exert influence on Europe's political landscape.

Despite this development, pro-European factions maintain majority control, limiting the new group's immediate impact. The AfD's strategic move follows its exclusion from other far-right alliances in the European Parliament, highlighting a shift towards a more independent stance.

The emergence of this right-wing group raises concerns due to the inclusion of parties with controversial views, such as racism, anti-Semitism, nationalism, neo-fascism, and ties to Putin. As the political landscape in the European Parliament evolves, the formation of these alliances underscores the growing influence of right-wing ideologies in the region.
