Europe's Political Earthquakes Point To Geopolitical Shifts

(MENAFN- Asia Times) European elections have sent shockwaves through the continent, revealing significant shifts in Political landscapes and signaling potential changes in geopolitical dynamics.

The results have been particularly tumultuous for French President Emmanuel macron and the Green parties across Europe, notably in Germany.

The elections proved especially disastrous for Macron and his allies. Macron's pro-European coalition suffered a severe defeat, trailing far behind the far-right National Rally (RN) led by Marine Le Pen.

With RN securing 31.5% of the vote against Macron's 15.2%, the French president was compelled to dissolve the National Assembly and call for early parliamentary elections, slated for June 30, with a second round on July 7. This move underscores the depth of the political crisis in France and Macron's precarious position.

In Germany, the Greens faced a substantial setback, losing a significant portion of their previous support. The party, once a strong advocate for aggressive climate policies and military support for Ukraine, saw its vote share drop dramatically to 11.9%, down from 20.5% in the previous European elections.

This decline highlights growing public disillusionment with the Green New Deal and the broader Davos agenda, which many voters now reject.
