The European Parliament Election for the European Union will be held in may 2019. What kind of EU do you want?
The European Parliament election within EU will be held in may 2019. As an EU-citizen you can vote on your local politicians that will then represent you in the European parliament.
DO YOU LIKE EU?
Do you like EU? Well good for you. As anyone can see there is a surge for populist parties around the world. That doesn’t mean that the European parliamental election will go the same way but it’s likely that the European parliamental election 2019 will have much attention from around the world.
Personnally I consider EU to be a disaster. Anyone can see that EU is going towards an United States of Europe. The decisions is being centralized and the nationalstates are getting ripped off their power.
I don’t want a supranational body as the EU.
THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT
The European Parliament (EP) consists om members from EU:s all 28 member states. The European Parliament is the only elected institution within EU:s 7 institutions. The parliament consists of 751 elected members which represents you in EU. They are called Members of the European Parliaments (MEPs). Members to the EP are elected every five-year. The political group which receives the most vote can elect the coming EU-commissioner.
The European Parliament consists of 8 political groups. These groups are: EPP, S&D, ECR, ALDE, GUE/NGL, Greens/EFA, EFDD, END and NI (NI = Non-Inscrits, is a group of MEPs without a political group). The European Parliament election will be held after United Kingdoms withdrawal from EU (congratulations England).
If you want to know more about the EU-skepticalgroups in the European Parliament you can read the text below.
EUROPE OF NATIONS AND FREEDOM GROUP (ENF)
One eurosceptic group is ENF – Europe of Nations and Freedom Group. ENF consists of Freedom Party of Austria (FPÖ), Flemish Interest (VB), National Front (FN) from France, Lega (LN) Italy, Party for Freedom (PVV) Netherlands, Congress of the New Right (KNP) Poland, UKIP (England). The Co-presidents for ENF are Nicholas Bay and Marcel de Graaff.
ENF in the European parliament. ENF stands for less EU, more national sovereignty and getting rid of the euro. Co-president Marcel de Graaff lays out the standpoint from ENF:
We want a Europe of sovereign states. We want a free Europe. We want a Europe that respects national individuality and national identity.
Our European cultures, our values and our freedom are under attack. They are threatened by the crushing and dictatorial powers of the European Union. They are threatened by mass immigration, by open borders and by a single European currency: one size does not fit all.
Nation states must be able to establish their own budgets, draw up their own laws, take control over their own borders, protect their own languages and cultures and have their own currencies. Therefore we want a different kind of cooperation.
The EU cannot deal with differences because it does not want sovereign nation states. But actually the foundation of the success of Europe has been the differences between states resulting from competition, cooperation, conflicts and peace. Beneath the surface of all the differences, there is the huge undercurrent of our common cultural heritage. Anyone who acknowledges the importance of our common legacy also acknowledges our differences and appreciates the significance of sovereign states.
We stand for a Europe of economic cooperation between nation states.

EUROPE OF FREEDOM AND DIRECTDEMOCRACY (EFDD)
The other eurosceptic group is Europe of Freedom and Directdemocracy (EFDD) which is led by Nigel Farage. EFDD consists of : The Free French, The Patriots, Debout La France (France), Party of Free citizens (Czech republic), Alternative for Germany Five Star Movement, Lega (Italy), Order and Justice (Lithuania):, Swedish Democrats, UKIP (U.K.).
Greatly divergent economies cannot be held together in a single currency union, and it is blatantly clear that the Euro zone is not an optimal currency zone. Holding the economies of Greece and Germany for instance in a currency union is like a man holding two melons together in one hand.
The euro was adopted for reasons of political ideology of EU centralisation and is regarded as sacrosanct by those federalists who proposed it. However from an economical and financial perspective it is indefensible. It is almost as if the Euro was purposely misconstrued from the beginning in order to engineer a financial crisis.
EU centralisers could then use it as an excuse to demand more power for Brussels and Frankfurt. When you look at the consequences of the Euro, ask the simple question – who has gained and who has lost? It is the unelected bureaucrats of Brussels and Frankfurt who have gained power while it is millions of ordinary people in Greece, Spain, Portugal, Italy and Ireland who have lost their jobs, their wealth and their hopes. It was inappropriate interest rates in Spain and Ireland for instance, allied to free-for-all migration that led to a building boom which ended in an inevitable bust, and mass unemployment.
