It should be noted that with France in this situation, everything is relatively clear. The country does not cease protests against the incumbent president Emmanuel Macron, and his rating is gradually declining. Therefore, it is not surprising that the National Association Party (formerly the National Front) gained 24,2% of the vote, while Macron's Party, Forward, Republic! only 22,4%, which is also not bad, given the circumstances.
Le Pen has already posted on her Twitter that the election can be considered a referendum on confidence in the French president, so "Macron must leave."
As for the UK, it is generally not clear why the European Union allowed this country to run for the European Parliament (legislative and representative body of the EU). After all, “Misty Albion” was to proudly “sail” from the shores of the EU on March 29, 2019 at 23:00 GMT.
London as much as possible stretched the “pleasure” and dragged out the procedure for withdrawing from the EU, but promised that in the near future it would certainly happen. However, what will British nationalists do in the European Parliament when their country ceases to be a member of this association? Who thought of it and allowed deputies who were not related to the EU to adopt laws that would allow citizens of EU countries to live?
So, as it was written above, in the UK a confident victory in the elections to the European Parliament was won by the Brexit party, the very name of which contradicts EU principles. 31,7% of voters voted for this party. Liberal Democrats (EU supporters) gained 18,6%. The Labor Party - 14,1%, and the Conservative Party - 8,7%.
We remind you that the European Parliament elections were held on May 23-26, 2019. The passage barrier was 5%. The next election is due to take place in 2024.
