Statement in Radio Sweden about Right-wing populism in Europe

Florian Hartleb says the EU elections always give alternative parties a better chance. “European elections are still ‘second’ elections with very little turnout”, he told Radio Sweden, “Outsider parties or anti-establishment parties like the Pirate Party in the last election, have much more opportunities than in the national election.” And the right-wing populist partiesĀ are likely to keep on doing well. Because they play on people’s fears, says Florian Hartleb.
