Let’s team up and form group no. 2 in the European Parliament – ​​POLITICO

Former Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki, of the conservative PiS party within the ECR, has also left the door open for a major rapprochement to the right, and there is widespread speculation that Hungary’s Viktor Orbán will affiliate his Fidesz party there after the elections.

All these mergers and reconfigurations are complex and vulnerable to post-election agreements and disagreements. The Czechs and Romanians of the ECR group do not want to associate themselves, for example, with Hungarian nationalists sympathetic to the Kremlin. Political gymnastics and major resets would be required to bring the AfD back under the tent.

If the loss of the AfD dented ID’s figures, it opened doors for Le Pen. The AfD and Le Pen’s National Rally have long been seen as too extremist to cooperate – outside of a so-called sanitary cordon created by the pro-European mainstream.

Cooperation with Meloni could therefore be a double victory for Le Pen. They could constitute an important voting bloc from which they could influence the European agenda and bring the National Rally more into the mainstream right in the public eye, something Le Pen craves ahead of the 2027 French elections.

In the interview, Le Pen denied that cutting ties with the AfD was a cynical move intended to facilitate new alliances in Europe.

Of Meloni, she said: “I think she and I agree on essential issues, including regaining control of our countries. »
