From wave to washout? Greens face tough time at EU vote

Across Europe, voters prioritized economic and migration policies over the planet as Green parties were the biggest losers of this year's European parliamentary elections. After their best ever results in 2019, the Greens are now left with 53 seats, down from 72. I find it disappointing that the Greens performed so poorly. They're the only party that actually does something sensible, but they are being boycotted and sabotaged over again by citizens because everyone wants to protect the environment, but not at their own expense. Traditionally a Green stronghold, the party S vote share nearly halved in Germany. In France, the main Green Party EE LV won just 5% of the vote. Yet not all was lost for the Greens. In Netherlands, the alliance of Greens and Socialist leaders came out on top, while the Swedish Greens secured 13.6% of the vote. But analysts say that security and economic troubles, environmental concerns for voters like in Germany or like in Italy. Young people have moved from. Concern for the survival of the planet. Greta Thunberg The Green to concern for the identity of their country as the Green faction loses momentum The European Green Deal, a package of cross party environmental policies, may also be up for debate with policies for reducing greenhouse gas emissions and increasing renewables. The deal has already faced challenges in recent months by the centre right European People's Party, a party now in the majority.
