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

The European elections brought a significant surprise with the victory of centrist parties, despite a slow rise of the far right. While extreme right parties managed to secure first and second place in some countries, overall, Europeans placed their trust in the center-right and center-left parties, showing a strength in political unity.

Before the elections, there were concerns about a dysfunctional parliament; however, the results showed that a traditional majority could still be formed for the next five years. The European People’s Party (EPP) remains the number one party in the European Parliament, while the center-left S&D party follows closely behind.

The political center also includes the liberal Renew group, which lost some seats but remains a significant player in parliament. Despite initial speculations about potential coalition with far-right ECR group, it became clear that a right-wing conservative coalition was not feasible.

The upcoming ruling coalition of the parliament is expected to be formed on cooperation between EPP, S&D and Renew. This “grand coalition” has been stable force in European politics and will continue to influence decisions related to EU budget, support for Ukraine and climate policy.

Incoming Commission’s key focus will be discussions on EU enlargement and reforms to decision-making systems common agricultural policy and climate initiatives. EU budget for 2021-2027 will also be crucial for next period’s decisions with debates on potential increases and funding sources.

In summary, European election results show continuation of political center dominance in EU decision making with implications for future policy decisions collaborative efforts within European Parliament. Priorities moving forward are stability support for Ukraine and climate policy.
