Far right gains in European Parliament vote

far right gains in European electionsFar-right and anti-European Union parties made sweeping gains in European Parliament elections Sunday — triggering what one prime minister called a political "earthquake" by those who want to slash the powers of the EU or abolish it altogether.

Voters in 21 of the EU's 28 nations went to the polls Sunday, choosing lawmakers for the bloc's 751-seat legislature. The other seven countries in the bloc had already voted in a process that began Thursday in Britain and the Netherlands.

One of the most significant winners was France's far-right, anti-immigrant National Front party, which was the outright winner in France — with 26 percent support, or 4.1 million votes. The National Front, like other far-right parties across Europe, promotes anti-immigrant and often anti-Semitic policies.

"The sovereign people have spoken ... acclaiming they want to take back the reins of their destiny," party leader Marine Le Pen said in a statement. She called the results "the first step in a long march to liberty."
