Voters in 20 EU countries cast ballots on final day of European Parliament election

Millions across the EU voted Sunday in parliamentary elections, likely shifting the bloc to the right. Key issues for voters included the war in Ukraine, migration, and climate policy impacts. Pro-European parties are expected to retain a majority but lose seats to hard-right parties led by figures like Italy’s Giorgia Meloni and Hungary’s Viktor Orbán. 

This shift could complicate EU legislation and decision-making. “I hope we avoid a rightward shift and stay united,” said Berlin voter Laura Simon. EU lawmakers influence financial, climate, and agricultural policies, approve the budget, and have veto power over the EU commission.
