ČRo Plus | Far-right parties in the European Parliament

Surveys suggest that the far-right is gaining strength. Experts predict the possibility of a "Trump-like moment" in Europe. How significant is this risk for key EU players such as Germany, France, or Italy? Are there similar reasons for the rise in support for right-wing parties across Europe? These and other questions were answered by Vít Havelka, Senior Researcher at EUROPEUM Institute for Czech Radio.

The latest polls we had the opportunity to see before the elections indicated that the far-right, namely AfD, is rather declining. This was due to various scandals surrounding this party. We will see if public opinion polls will ultimately confirm this.
