In the aftermath of the European elections, if the time is for the adaptation of the Union to the expectations of the citizens, in France the time does not seem to be constrained, the Elysée even expects to accelerate the train of reforms.

Past the various and varied reactions to the results of the European elections, which did not reveal any particular surprises or gave rise to any cataclysm, polling institute and political headquarters that anticipated the rise of extreme right parties and populists on a European scale, are now asking the questions of the post-election meeting.

First finding of questions, even contained in the European Parliament, the far right European is a push that will worry any self-respecting Democrats. And, this is the question, what project should the European Union implement to reconcile some of the Europeans with the Union and thus bring down the populist fever.

Ideological Test and Relevance

The building site is huge and multiple because the reasons for disenchantment between the political Europe and its citizens are numerous but not insoluble. Second question, why some countries were able to stem the populist push like Spain or Portugal? It would not be out of place to take an interest in the functioning of these two countries in Southern Europe, which have been hard hit, more than others, by the consequences of the 2008 crisis.

Finally, in France, a more detailed analysis is needed and for good reason. The results obtained by the two parties emerged largely in the lead, with a benefit that is nothing extraordinary for the National Rally (23.3%) on The Republic in March (22.4%), question on the continuation to to give by Emmanuel Macron to his quinquennium.

This European election, presented as a mid-term test, or even a referendum disguised as a policy for two years, gave birth to a mouse. The balance of power established during the presidential election of 2017 was confirmed, more by the absence of credible political speeches outside the two parties than by the relevance of the ideological lines displayed by the one and the other formations, it does not necessarily appear necessary for the President of the Republic to radically change his policy if it is not to strengthen his action in favor of the environment, electoral pressure obliges.

Because if the score obtained in France by the Greens is honorable (13,3%), it is watched with attention because largely superior to that of the political formations - Party Socialist and the Republicans - completely unhooked but is in no way a result that gives the environmentalist training the status of a justice of the peace.

Yellow Vests and Deafness

So, what conclusions to draw from it? Firstly, that despite a high score, close to that obtained in the 2014 European elections, the National Rally (then National Front), fails to distance LREM, which tended to prove the limits of his speech and especially his influence on the electoral body.

Secondly, that the presidential party has, overall, received the shock of the elections and, in the end, suffered little from the latent social crisis of the Yellow Vests, which remains a Franco-French problem far from the concerns that are agitating the European Parliament or the Commission. All of which could strengthen the position of the President of the Republic unconvinced that other options are possible so far. Political deafness?

Some would think but in view of the results recorded by LREM, strong conclusions of the Great debate over the winter and part of spring, the Elysee could even accelerate the train reforms. Far from the results of the European elections ...
