Guardian: “Finland’s Greens were 2nd with 16 percent; Europe Écologie-Les Verts & former senior Greenpeace figure, was 3rd in France with 13 percent, up from 9 percent; a Portuguese Green Party won 1st European parliament seat.” Projections Sunday indicated that, overall, Greens secured 71 seats in European Parliament, up from 52 seats five years ago.
Youth vote is credited for the green parties's rise: election gives the party a mandate for change in Europe. The Commission must take this into account, as climate protection, social justice, and defense of rule of law and democracy gave the Greens this important win. It’s time the EU puts all its efforts into a sustainable future and starts caring for its citizens.
