EU elections: Immigration, stalemate, civil unrest, and the prophesied reorganization


Voting in the European parliamentary elections ends today. Here are some reports from Europe and the USA:

European elections: Super Sunday in full swing

9 June 2024

Voters in 21 EU countries, including Germany and France, conclude a four-day election for the European Parliament.

What you need to know

  • Some 373 million citizens from 27 EU countries are eligible to vote
  • Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Lithuania , Luxembourg, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovenia, Spain and Sweden all vote on Sunday
  • The European Parliament comprises 720 members (MEPs) elected every five years …

Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni‘s Brothers of Italy party … is expected to increase its number of seats in the European Parliament from seven in the last election, potentially expanding its influence in the EU. …

Germany … much attention will be paid to the performance of the far-right Alternative for Germany, which enjoyed strong support last year but has suffered a series of setbacks in the run-up to the European elections.

The party can expect to improve its performance in 2019, but perhaps not as much as it hopes. …

France’s far-right leader, Marine Le Pen, and her National Rally party are expected to be the big winners in the European Parliament elections.

Pollsters expect the National Rally to win most of France’s 81 seats, far ahead of President Emmanuel Macron’s moderate, pro-business party.

June 9, 2024

Surveys suggest that mainstream and pro-European parties will retain their majority in parliament, but that the hard right, including parties led by politicians like the Netherlands’ Geert Wilders and France’s Marine Le Pen will eat into their share of seats.

That would make it harder for Europe to pass legislation and make decisions.  …

Geert Wilders’ anti-migrant hard right party would make important gains in the Netherlands, even though a coalition of pro-European parties has probably pushed it into second place.

Casting his vote in the Flanders region, Belgian Prime Minister Alexander De Croo, whose country holds the EU’s rotating presidency until the end of the month, warned that Europe is “at a crossroads” and “more under pressure than ever.”

Since the last EU election in 2019, populist or far-right parties now lead governments in three nations — Hungary, Slovakia and Italy — and are part of ruling coalitions in others including Sweden, Finland and, soon, the Netherlands. Polls give the populists an advantage in France, Belgium, Austria and Italy.

“Right is good,” Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, who leads a stridently nationalist and anti-migrant government, told reporters after casting his ballot. “To go right is always good. Go right!”

In Berlin, voter Laura Simon said: “I do hope that we will manage to avoid a shift to the right and that Europe will somehow remain united.”

After the election comes a period of horse-trading, as political parties reconsider their places in the continent-wide political alliances that run the European legislature.

The biggest political group — the center-right European People’s Party (EPP) — has moved right during the present elections on issues like security and migration.

There is a shift going on in the European Union. Islamic and other immigrants are becoming less welcome and that is a major reason that there looks to be a rise in right-wing political influence.

One concern that was listed above was the results of the election could, “make it harder for Europe to pass legislation and make decisions.”

There is also risk that not solving issues related to migration and the economy could lead to civil unrest–which will happen in Europe.

Notice also another report that came out late yesterday:

European Elections: Forging Ahead Or A Spanner In The Works

June 8, 2024

  • The European Parliament elections will serve as a pivotal test of the far right’s influence on the European political landscape.
  • It appears another centrist coalition can be formed, but the far right may still shape the dynamics of parliamentary operations and the allocation of EU top jobs.
  • The European People’s Party will have a key position. …

The European Parliament elections, scheduled for June 6-9, 2024, are expected to carry significant implications for the future of the European Union. This significance primarily arises from the increasing prominence of right-wing parties across Europe, as evidenced by their recent electoral victories and influence in national politics. This election’s outcome does not necessarily preclude the implementation of ambitious plans to overhaul the EU, but it does highlight the risk of either policy stasis or unbalanced decisions. …

The far right has been largely excluded from power across Europe due to tacit agreements among centrist parties, even as its influence does compel the center right to adopt stricter anti-immigration, anti-trade, and anti-environment stances. It appears another centrist coalition between the EPP and the S&D can be formed, contingent on participation of the Liberals and/or the Greens. A right-wing coalition comprising the EPP and the ECR could also be tried, but this would require additional support from other parties. …

However, when we juxtapose the possible shape of a compromise in the European Parliament with the commission and council’s ambitions, we could envisage two scenarios that may, at some point, adversely impact euro assets:

  • The risk of stasis precipitating the demise of the European project.
  • The risk of the commission or council pushing their agendas and leading to unbalanced results.

Risk of stasis

While the effective response to Covid-19 and the energy crisis highlighted the necessity of EU coordination and joint funding, we could expect some difficult moments on topics such as i) new EU funding sources, ii) the permanence of common funding as a feature of the European toolkit, iii) the need for a permanently larger EU budget, and iv) the need for state aid.

Resistance is likely to come from groups opposed to further integration and the dilution of national competences.

Yes, a risk of stasis, stalemate, is real.

This, in turn, tends to frustrate people and can lead to more protests and even civil unrest.

But it also sets the stage for more in the European public to want a strong and decisive leader–a dictator. Europe will reorganize:

12 “The ten horns which you saw are ten kings who have received no kingdom as yet, but they receive authority for one hour as kings with the beast. 13 These are of one mind, and they will give their power and authority to the beast. (Revelation 17:12-13)

(More on the reorganization is discussed in the article: Must the Ten Kings of Revelation 17:12 Rule over Ten Currently Existing Nations?)

Europe will one day support a dictatorial strongman. The Bible calls him the Beast of the Sea (Revelation 13:1-10) and the King of the North (Daniel 11:40).

Sometime after various crises and troubles during the “beginning of sorrows” (Mark 13:5-8), a particular leader will arise.  Notice some of what daniel was inspired to write:

25 And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand. (Daniel 8:25, KJV).

23 And after the league is made with him he shall act deceitfully, for he shall come up and become strong with a small number of people. 24 He shall enter peaceably, even into the richest places of the province; and he shall do what his fathers have not done, nor his forefathers: he shall disperse among them the plunder, spoil, and riches; and he shall devise his plans against the strongholds, but only for a time. (Daniel 11:23-24, NKJV)

So this leader gives people the impression that there will be “peace.”

In troubled times, strong leaders promising peace tend to gain support.

After two prophesied reorganizations in Europe (Revelation 17:12-13), he will gain power.

What is going on now related to the EU parliamentary elections is actually helping set the stage for his rise.
