Projections for the 2024 European Parliament elections indicate [a substantial gain for populist right parties](https://ecfr.eu/publication/a-sharp-right-turn-a-forecast-for-the-2024-european-parliament-elections/), with a potential conservative majority emerging. The shift suggests a reorientation of EU policies, particularly an opposition to aggressive climate action. Current figures forecast Renew Europe (RE) at 173 seats, Greens/European Free Alliance (G/EFA) at 86, and the European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR) at 61, indicating notable changes from present seat distributions.
