Analysis: Key takeaways from the EU election results | DW News 4.5

The European parliamentary elections have seen their biggest turnout in 20 years. Participation in the EU elections was up by neary 10 points compared with five years ago. Europe's traditionally large centrist parties have suffered significant losses, as Greens, liberals and nationalists gained ground in Brussels. But voters delivered a complicated message: it’s a patchwork result from a patchwork union.

A huge part where Germany CDU/CSU and SPD lost ton of votes is how these parties handle the climate change. They dumped down photovoltaic and don't want to loose the cole burning. In a few years we are faced with unstoppable, irreversible heating of Earth. We have to act now to stop that breakpoint. And CDU/CSU, SPD did nothing about it the past years.

Jeez man, can't just present the facts. Have to flavor it with bias.

Far right? The brexit party ran without a manifesto and with only one objective to leave Europe, what is far right about that?

What a lovely result to wake up with.
Never in the history of mankind has there been a progressive bloc as powerful as the EU Greens are now.

Fragmentation is good. Those large Left and Right centrists needed to have their noses bloodied. A good reality check for them.

Do these new agencies research things? Le Pen's party lost 1, 5% and a seat compared to 2014. How can they call that a victory? How does that change FN's position in europe for the better?

"the greens on the left, and the nationalist parties on the far right" funny how the far left apparently doesn't exist.

I saw it more like this: In effect, the whole of Europe has moved Right one step like soldiers on the Parade Ground. The Communists lose 14 seats, > the Greens gain 14 seats, the S&D's lose 37 seats > the Liberals gain 39 seats, the EPP lose 37 seats > the harder Right gain 37 seats. A Political Newton's Cradle.
