Results of the 2024 European elections: what you need to know

The result of the 2024 European elections could further reconfigure the political landscape in France as in the EU next June…

The 2024 European elections will be synonymous with heavy sanctions for Emmanuel Macron, half of his second term ? Some people have in any case been betting for several weeks on the problem of the majority troops, in difficulty; in surveys &agrav; a few days before the election. Val&rie Hayer, who took the lead in the Renaissance list for these Europeans, seems to be having trouble getting ahead of herself. "print" according to the established term. Understand: make an impression and exist in a campaign currently shunned by the media, as well as by public opinion.

In this context, the results of Europeans already seem to have improved. smile at the National Gathering, taken away by Jordan Bardella. Credit with almost a third of the votes in certain polls, the new frontist leader wants to position himself as France's leading opponent to the opposition. Emmanuel Macron during the election and inflict humiliation à the majority, as a foretaste of the 2027 presidential election. 5 years ago, the RN, led by by the same Bardella, was already arrived with almost a point ahead of the majority. (23.3% of the votes against 22.4% for the LREM list of Nathalie Loiseau). The gap that is expected this year could be around 10 or even 15 points if we are to believe the institutes (30 to 33% voting intentions for the RN according to the various polls compared to 17 to 20% for Renaissance).

A European election not European enough ?

The right and the left, they are still trying to survive à the explosion of traditional blocs that began in 2017. The Republicans, led by François-Xavier Bellamy, should hardly do better than the 8.5% obtained in 2019, caught between two far-right parties, the RN and Reconquête! (credited with approximately 5% of the votes) on one side, the center right of the majority on the other. After the breakthrough of the Nupes in the last legislative elections, the left is getting involved in these Europeans in a unique way ;exploded. If Raphaël Glucksmann (Place Publique, ally of the PS) appears as the revelation of this election and seems best placed in with 10% or more of the voting intentions, he will have to share the left-wing votes with others: La France insoumise led by Manon Aubry, the EELV list led by Marie Toussaint (each created (said to be 7% to 8%, far from Yannick Jadot's 13.5% in 2019) and the Communist Party, which also left alone behind Léon Deffontaines (between 2 and 3% voting intentions).

But let there be no mistake: in addition to its impact at the national level on the political landscape and the speculations which will not be lacking in the coming years. Following the results, the challenge of these European elections for the French will above all be to influence the decisions and the legislation of the European Union, to which France is subject in the same way as other EU member countries. In a context of international threats (war in Ukraine, big eyes from Moscow, conflicts in the Middle East, terrorist risk), the question of a powerful Europe capable of defending its members alone , is notably posed. It is all the more important at a later date. a moment when the specter of a return of Donald Trump to power in the United States, during the presidential election at the end of the year, questions American support. 

Despite; these issues, the European elections are struggling to meet these challenges. interest French readers. During the last elections, there were only 50.66% of those registered to vote. go vote. The fault lies in the European character of the election which seems, wrong, far from their concerns.

The new result of the 2024 European elections will indeed give meaning to the policy of the EU itself. At the end of the elections, the balance of power within the parliamentary groups will change. Brussels and à Strasbourg could change and influence the directions of the Union. If in each country, voters vote for national political groups, the latter then come together within larger political groups. at the level of the European Parliament, depending on their ideologies. You need at least 23 people from at least seven different countries to form a group. There are currently seven groups in the European Parliament, which are from most to least important:

  • The European People's Party, where seat The Republicans.
  • The social democratic group, where sit the elected representatives of the socialist left. 
  • The centrist group Renew Europe, whereù seats the majority presidential office. 
  • Ecologists, where headquarters of the Europe-Ecology-the Greens party.
  • Identity Democracy (ID), which includes the National Rally in its ranks
  • The European Conservatives and Reformists (CRE), the other far-right group in which Reconqu& ecirc;te.
  • The radical left group, supported by France Insoumise.

According to current projections made on poll results. The two conservative parties could gain strength and the Identit&eac; and Democracy (that of the National Rally) would be able to match the number of members of the Renew group (linked to the Macronist majority). The European Conservatives and reformists would follow closely, passing in front of the environmentalist and left-wing forces. Parliament could then be composed of: for half further to the right and far right.

This European trend is confirmed in the national polls carried out in France on the European elections since the start of the year. ;eacute;e 2024. One list has in fact been at the head of the polls for several months and consolidates  its lead over the others: that of the National Rally which has on average around ten points ahead of the majority presidential, and sometimes more. Despite the gaps between each list, a leading trio seems to emerge for the time being with scores higher than the previous list. the 10% mark. But in total, seven of the main lists would be able to meet the 5% threshold, necessary to obtain elected representatives in the European Parliament, according to polls.
