Centrist Parties Secure Win in European Elections, Shaping Future EU Policy

Positive outcomes for Ukraine, climate, and workers in European elections

Despite the rise of far-right parties in some countries, centrist parties emerged victorious in the European elections. The European People’s Party (EPP) and the center-left S&D party remained at the top of the European Parliament, with liberal Renew also maintaining its influence.

Before the election, there were concerns about a dysfunctional parliament, but it appears that a traditional majority can still be formed for the next five years. The upcoming ruling coalition is expected to be a “grand coalition” between EPP, S&D, and Renew. This group has been a stable force in European politics and is likely to continue influencing decisions related to EU budget, support for Ukraine, and climate policy.

In the next five years, discussions on EU enlargement and reforms to decision-making systems will be key areas of focus. Common agricultural policy and climate initiatives will also be important topics of debate. The EU budget for 2021-2027 will also be a major issue for the next Commission.

Overall, the results of these elections show that centrist parties continue to dominate EU decision-making. This dominance has potential implications for future policy decisions and collaborative efforts within the European Parliament. Stability, support for Ukraine, and climate policy are likely to remain key priorities moving forward.
