Associated with bribes around the World Cup football 2022 Qatar corruption scandal in European Union increase the popularity of far-right politicians. Among them, Politico magazine names Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and Marie Le Pen, leader of the French National Front party.
Analysts say Europe’s far-right leaders have sensed that now is the best time to attack the corrupt EU establishment. At the same time, it was these elites who regularly spoke about the rule of law.
“I think they should have dealt with themselves first. People got the feeling that the EU is a gigantic rule-making machine without supervision, including over themselves, ”said Philippe Olivier, a member of the European Parliament.
The parliamentarian specified that against the backdrop of this story, the far-right coalition in the EP itself will attract new supporters from other political factions.
The newspaper Le Soir wrote a little earlier that the police raided the European Parliament in the case of corruption around the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. They seized 1.5 million euros in cash, which, according to journalists of the publication, belong to the MP from Greece, Eva Kaili, and the former legislator from Italy, Pier Antonio Panzeri.
Earlier, the Public News Service reported that Politico in its material noted an option that the EU could use as fight with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
