The European commission says parliamentary elections that wrapped up yesterday proved predictions wrong about the popularity of far right movements, although centrist party’s lost seats in the European parliament. Terry Shalterz reports Brussels is relieved that the nationalist and Euro skeptic surge remained relatively small. Anti European union parties made significant gains in some countries. French president Emmanuel Macron’s political movement lost to the ** nationalist party of Marine Le Pen, the Brexit party in Britain came in first, and Italian deputy prime minister Matteo Salvini’s far right league ** all other parties. Still many polls had forecasted a big wave EU wide as underscored by European commission spokesman Margaritis Schinas, ‘populists didn’t win this election, contrary to doomsayers’ prophecies, it is the pro-EU political forces across the political spectrum that won the day.’ In both the Netherlands and the Denmark anti immigrant nationalist parties lost most of their seats.
