European elections 2019: What future for Europe?
Date created : Latest update :
Making election predictions can be a risky business, but there is likely to be a big shake-up in the European political spectrum after the EU-wide parliament vote at the end of May. The spokesman of Germany's far-right Alternative Für Deutschland recently said he hopes the results will teach some "self-doubt" in Brussels. Meanwhile, many environmentalists are hoping that recent school strikes and the London "Extinction Rebellion" protests will bring a so-called "green wave" into the parliament.
So what can we expect on results night on May 26? And what about the next step, choosing the successor to Jean-Claude Juncker as head of the European Commission?
We discuss these issues with two MEPs.
