A brief summary of the european elections

Two weeks since the European election – time for a recap! One positive turn out is the participation which has risen by almost 10 percent in Germany. This shows not only the increased importance of international solutions that people want, but also a progressive politicization. Especially among young voters, the European elections and their impact on the climate crisis was an important issue, and not just because of active Youtubers. Because of their almost arrogant, cocky handling of legitimate criticism, the established parties have lost even more sympathy than they probably would have with the Rezo video alone. In return, many small parties have been able to use the European elections to attract attention. This also shows the Sunday question of yesterday: Other parties reached over nine percent. Also interesting: ‚Die Grünen’ would have been the strongest party, if yesterday would have been federal election. They combine the power of an established party with ecological and liberal values. Together with the ‚Linken‘, they combined twice as many votes in the European election as the AFD (and even more in the fictitious election of yesterday). As long as it stays that way, the parties in the center can continue to lose votes. Of course it’s a problem that right and extreme right-wing parties and 'politicians' sit in the European Parliament and the Bundestag. I see it like that: those people already existed before the AFD. They were members of the CDU / CSU, the NPD, the Republican or non-voters. Through their fusion, they have become more powerful, but also more controllable. They no longer hide behind christian values ​​and have obviously led to a renewed politicization of the population. They are an indicator of what is not working in this country and therefore, in a sense, are useful for political debate. But we shouldn’t get too used to it. © @seriously_kids
