POPULIST DOMINATION: Nationalist Parties Swept the French, Britain and Italian Elections for European Parliament
The globalist establishment of the European Union witnessed some big losses in the European parliamentary elections that took place on Sunday May 26, 2019.
In France, Marine Le Pen’s Rassemblement National (RN) won 24 percent of the vote, whereas Emmanuel Macron’s La Republique En Marche! (LREM) came in second place with 22.5 percent of the vote.
Following this electoral triumph, Le Pen called on Macron to dissolve the French parliament, declaring that “it is up to the President of the Republic to draw the consequences” and then demanded that Macron face a snap election.
In Italy, Interior Minister Matteo Salvini’s La Lega party came out on top, with 32 percent of the vote. La Lega’s popularity has skyrocketed recently thanks to Salvini’s hardline immigration policies.
Meanwhile in the United Kingdom, Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party won 29 seats across the UK with 32 percent of the vote. Frustrated at the lack of progress on Brexit, voters voiced their displeasure with the ruling Conservative Party which lost 15 seats and came in a measly fifth place.
Farage warned that inaction on Brexit would come with a big price.
Early Monday morning, Farage declared that “If we don’t leave on October 31, the scores you’ve seen tonight will be repeated in a general election and we are getting ready for that.”
The populist wave continues to sweep across Europe as everyday Europeans are becoming frustrated with Brussels’ globalist policies and want to see governments that are actually closer to home and reflect the will of their constituents.
