European election – what the new European Parliament will look like?

The centre-right European People’s Party remains the first European party followed by the Party of European Socialist and the centrist alliance ALDE + Macron’s Renaissance. Sovranists parties are gaining places especially in France (Rassemblement national), Italy (Lega), UK (Brexit Party), Poland (PiS) and Hungary (Fidesz) where they came first.
