HASith 83 deputies as a substitute of 66, the ECR group (sovereignists) can present good development within the European Parliament. It would simply move forward of the group of centrist liberals (Renew) though it continues its recruitment amongst new deputies. The ECR group, dominated by the determine of Giorgia Meloni and the Poles of PiS, opened its doorways to former Zemmourists (Marion Maréchal, Guillaume Peltier and Laurence Trochu) who thus joined Nicolas Bay (already a member). Sarah Knafo, the final elected Reconquête!, who remained loyal to Éric Zemmour – she can also be his companion – will subsequently sit alone among the many non-registered, except one other group presents her hospitality.

ECR additionally recruited an elected official from the Party of Danes, a Bulgarian elected official from the “There is such a people” get together, and 5 elected officers from the Romanian AUR get together (Alliance for the Union of Romanians), which got here in second place in Romania with 14 .93%. AUR desires to be a celebration defending “family, faith, homeland and freedom”.

ECR doesn’t make a pact with Viktor Orban due to Ukraine

The most essential factor in these negotiations, nevertheless, stays that the negotiations between the ECR group and Viktor Orban have failed. Officially, the ECR group won’t let the eight Hungarian Fidesz deputies enter till Viktor Orban clarifies his place concerning assist for Ukraine in opposition to Russian aggression. An unconvincing clarification provided that the AUR get together, which has been built-in, can also be the reason for severe territorial conflicts and its chief, George Simion, suspected of taking part in into the fingers of the Russians.

AUR defends the thought of ​​a higher Romania past its present borders. He advocates the reunification of Moldova and Ukrainian Bukovina, that are residence to a Romanian minority, along with his territory. Even Viktor Orban has by no means expressed such extreme positions in the direction of the Hungarian minority in Ukraine.

The French of the RN have their heads elsewhere

The Hungarian Prime Minister dreamed of himself as a matchmaker between Giorgia Meloni and Marine Le Pen in an effort to convey collectively the sovereignists of ECR ​​and the nationalists of the ID group. This undertaking is useless. The ID group continues its journey by itself. Viktor Orban, failed by ECR, may be part of the ID group accompanied by a small delegation of latest events. “But it is not excluded that Orban forms his own group in the European Parliament,” confides a Hungarian supply.

In this case, will probably be essential to convey collectively 23 deputies from 7 completely different nationalities. The Germans from the AfD, who have been excluded from the ID group, are additionally looking for to type an autonomous group… Fidesz will not be contemplating an alliance with the 15 elected representatives of the AfD, which complicates issues. The far proper tends to fragment slightly than unite.

Marine Le Pen, together with her 29 RN deputies within the ID group, is garnering new memberships however not as many as ECR. We are speaking a few group of round 60 to 65 deputies. “But with the legislative elections in France, no one has the lead in parliamentary negotiations,” confides an inside supply. Jordan Bardella is pondering of Matignon. Jean-Paul Garaud, the pinnacle of the RN delegation, already sees himself as a minister. The Italian Marco Zanni, from the Lega, who led the ID group is leaving since he was not elected. »

At ID, we’re subsequently ready for Marine Le Pen to offer directions. But they don't come. “Everyone complains, but it all depends on the French,” we summarize internally.
