Brussels business representatives anticipate forming a coalition with the centre-right party.

The European business and labour community expressed their satisfaction with the outcome of the EU election, with the centre-right maintaining its position. Eurochambres, an association of European Chambers of Commerce and Industry, celebrated the results and called for a revision to the Parliament’s previous Green Deal to ensure fairness for all businesses.

On the other hand, the European Trade Union Confederation (ETUC), which represents workers at a European level, noted a decline in the Left and Green parties but highlighted the potential for advancing a social agenda and welfare model with a majority in Parliament. ETUC Secretary Esther Lynch stressed the importance of not making deals with extreme right-wing parties, citing past instances where they have voted against working people’s interests.

Regarding renewing the Green Deal, ETUC advocated for more social investment and called for a new EU Just Transition Directive to support workers through the transition to a greener economy. Meanwhile, Eurochambres CEO Ben Butters emphasized that there is a need for a stronger single market to support a more autonomous European Union while also expressing concerns about burdensome legislation that came with the Green Deal, particularly in manufacturing sectors.
