The next European Parliament elections will take place on 23-26 May 2019 in the Member States of the European Union. Given the current complex political context, these elections are becoming a sort of referendum on the EU project, and a key political test for many countries.

The end of the political crisis and next steps for the new government:The new pro- European government looks to be willing to move in a different direction vs the previous one, with an agenda focused on green and socially inclusive policies. It is difficult to project how long this new coalition will last, but it will certainly have to address the next budget law. We expect to see some expansionary measures (lower labour costs plus investment spending), but without putting public finances at risk. However, the available room for manoeuvre is narrow.
