Far-right parties form group in EU Parliament

BRUSSELS – The far-right parties in the European Parliament announced Tuesday they have mustered enough unity to form a political group under the leadership of France’s National Front of Marine Le Pen.

Tuesday’s move of the National Front, the Dutch PVV of Geert Wilders, Austria’s Freedom Party, Italy’s Northern League and the Belgian Flemish Interest Party will give them more clout in the European Union legislature and add more of an anti-EU flavor to proceedings. “I am happy to announce the beginning of the group Europe of Nations and Freedoms,” Le Pen told reporters as she was surrounded by leaders of the other political groups.
