al-jazeera. al-jazeera. where ever you are. the battle for europe pro and anti e.u. forces compete for control of the european parliament as final polls close in the elections this as greece's prime minister dissolves his government and calls for snap election.
6:49 am
i'm arianna and you're with al-jazeera also coming up on the program iran and iraq present a united front over an escalating crisis with the united states and why with just over 5 weeks to go until algeria's election there are no candidates. or polls have just closed in italy the last you country to vote in elections that will decide the balance of power across the continent it's europe's most important election in decades where a rising populace a valid to grab supply. from the traditional parties $751.00 seats in the european parliament to up for grabs and the makeup of that chamber will shape the future of the e.u. well so let's just look then at the results the early projections and how
6:50 am
what they indicate essentially about a potential make up of the european parliament a center right european peoples party is 178 seats followed by the progressive alliance of socialists and democrats with one $147.00 seats the alliance of european liberals and democrats is on $101.00 seats the populous bloc which calls itself a europe of nations and freedom have $57.00 seats and the year of freedom and direct democracy which includes the u.k.'s breaks it party has 56 seats with the greens on 70 seats sarah is at the european parliament in brussels she's been following this story for us and these elections were framed by both sides as a source of battle between liberal democracy and the more populist nationalist forces in europe tell us what the projections are showing about the possible makeup of the european parliament in the direction it might take. in
6:51 am
marry him i mean if you're saying that elections are always framed in that sort of choice between liberal democracies and perhaps more nationalist viewpoints of the european union the truth is that then we've had a pretty mixed result because we have seen some gains of the far right not everywhere and we certainly have seen the erosion of the influence of many of the mainstream parties so let's look at the main groups within the european parliament there's a group on the center right the p.p. with the most center right parties across europe they're part of it and then a center left group the s. and d. and so historically they have formed a coalition because between them they would have an absolute majority now even though we don't have all the final results it does. look like they're not going to be able to form that majority and they're about 70 seats short now the question is would they still try to form it together with another grouping to join them the greens for example could be. you know potentially a match at all would they try to form it with other groups or perhaps the center
6:52 am
right might look to other other rightwing perhaps more far right political groupings the truth is we don't know right now but we certainly do know that the dominance that did the 2 mainstream parties enjoyed is no longer there in parliament the numbers just simply don't add up so we've had i suppose the let we're still waiting for exact details coming from the u.k. but we've had results from italy we're joined now by simona is a data analyst for european legs you've been looking at all the numbers a lot of people have been waiting for the tally was also because of course mattel survey me the self-appointed leader of a potential far right alliance so what do they look like. so far the projections what we can tell is that. we perform. lower than we've been pows were expecting pows were expecting more or less averaging from 27 to 30 percent of the vote of course this has big repercussions for the european parliament or for the
6:53 am
new the new group of the n.f.l. rebranded group. lieutenant leading anything and so do they have the numbers then said vinie le pen and a lot of the other parties that are falling under that alliance do they have the numbers to disrupt the work of parliaments. these will depend very much on the degree according to which the main european groups in the european parliament will be able to join forces meaning that if the sent this traditional tandem center right and center left will be joined by then by the liberals by the growing greens of course they will be able. to overcome try to coming from the far from the from the right wing of the chamber of course this is an important question and something that will play out over the course of the neck of the coming week. oh it's a shame apologies for that we'll try to reestablish connection there with brussels but just getting a sense of barbara's conversation there with her guest about how disruptive the
6:54 am
impact of the populist nationalist presence in the european parliament could be although these are just projections right now we don't have the final results yet of this election but of course we know that mainstream parties have suffered a bit of a drubbing and we have seen smaller parties in populous parties making some gains interesting developments in greece where the prime minister alexis tsipras has called a snap election after his party suffered a heavy defeat in the european parliamentary elections now early results there show that his party. is trailing the opposition new democracy party now they're trailing by about 9.6 prizes popularity is fall'n jews are recent controversial a name change agreement signed with north macedonia his term had been due to expire in october but a vote is now expected to be held in june so that's the state of play there in
6:55 am
greece that said to john psaropoulos who is in athens for us what's been the reaction there in the greek capital. well the reaction has been very rapid the opposition leader who is now in the ascendant. very quickly after about the 1st 20 percent of the results were in called for the prime minister to resign he said greece needs a new a fresh mandate a strong new government to face the challenges ahead both in the economy but also with respect to its geopolitical position the reference to neighboring turkey and the problems that have existed in the last couple of years in greek turkish relations. he says that the government should resign and the new election should be called and that happened a short while afterwards mr super as the prime minister came out and said that even though the result secures our position as a protagonist as a key player in the political contest it is not up to par with our expectations i
6:56 am
will not ignore this result he says that he will call for a general election immediately after the 2nd round of local elections which is next weekend and that places the greek general election somewhere near the end of june because constitutionally the incumbent has a blood to give at least 3 to 4 weeks notice so that is that has been the result of these european parliament elections and that has dramatically 1st something similar happened 4 years ago 245 years ago in may of 2014 when c.d.'s there was in the ascendant and they topped the then ruling new democracy conservatives 4 points in these european parliament polls at that point everybody knew that caesar was going to be the next government the same thing has happened on the reverse. ok thank you very much john psaropoulos in afghans and barbara is back.
6:57 am
european parliament in brussels and done right we just got kos off and we're hearing from you and your. guest about well how disruptive some of these populous nationalist forces could be because the early results so far suggest that marine le pen is in pole position in france i'm a terror cell the mean a tele could also be in a strong position after this election. absolutely i mean it has to be said that polls had suggested for months that both of those parties would do very well so perhaps that's not much of a surprise but it is certainly symbolic that now you have far right parties getting more votes than the mainstream parties and the question is whether a lot of these parties can form an alliance let's go back to a similar response ito from europe alexa data analyst with them so that's the point i mean we're now seeing the results the the old d.n.a.
6:58 am
was the new salvini alliance the far right grouping in parliament has done well not as well as perhaps some people were expecting what are the chances are that they may convince other smaller far right parties in europe that perhaps haven't joined them so far to join a grand alliance of the far right i think this is a very likely situation we do we do expect a number of smaller but not so small political parties from other european countries to eventually join. the alliance of course these replay out over the course of the coming weeks and this it will also depend on now with these other. right leaning groups inside the european parliament will fare. for the country i mean a lot of these parties have to put it mildly controversial views especially when it comes to immigration and integration here in the parliament how destructive could they be because as well as the controversial views many of them effectively want to change the e.u. from within and some would say destroy the e.u.
6:59 am
from within can they. at the moment at the present time they will not be able these the euro skeptic groups will not be able. to say it to destroy the the u.s. some say however the bigger the group becomes. the bigger the potential for disruption within the parliament within the policymaking activity of the european parliament and its europe sometimes is i guess hard to love as an institution because it's very complicated even europeans don't know much about it and certainly people around the world will have heard of the european union but will not know how detailed all new institutions are if you seen in you know crunching the data and seeing who's turned out to vote and who for that perhaps we have seen more engagement of this time from europeans for the selection because of course this is the only time that they can vote directly for an institution. very much so we've seen turnout rising in almost all the countries inside the european union bar
7:00 am
a few small countries but turnout is up in germany is up in france is up in italy over europe and of course. at the beginning that was supposed to play out play in favor of the of the big the bigger your skeptic groups however as we said the mixed results for the for the european for the for the rupee an alliance led by said we need make is think these will not be decays as the greens those have been able to mobilize both are very much the same one as president from europe elects thank you so much so merriam of course a lot of the results might still change a little some exit polls some a national projections but we really do have an image now of the european parliament who's got how many seats the question is how now they're all going to perhaps change the groups that they sit in deed in many way in many ways that the real work starts now doesn't after the election thank you very much sara in brussels. well the results of these elections could give a.
