‘Far right to conclude secret agreement’

Published on 15 November 2013 at 10:36


“At a very private meeting in a hotel in Vienna” on November 15, several European far right parties including Vlaams Belang (Belgium), the Front National (France), the Party for Freedom (Netherlands), the Freedom Party of Austria and the Northern League (Italy) are to draft a conceptual cooperation agreement, announces De Morgen.
The document will “lay the foundations for a grand far right bloc in Europe” in the run-up to 2014 European elections, explains the daily. Given that representatives of seven parties are required to form a group in the European Parliament, De Morgen notes that —

… support from the Northern League, which currently has nine seats [in the European Parliament] is especially good [for the far right alliance]. But the parties will have a lot on their plate. It appears that Alternative für Deutschland and the UK Independence Party failed to turn up at the last minute.
