European nationalist parties have announced an alliance, with the aim of changing the balance of power in the European Union.
Italy’s Deputy Prime Minister, Matteo Salvini of the right-wing League party announced the venture on Monday at a news conference in Milan.
He was joined by Germany’s far-right AFD, the Finns Party and the Danish People’s Party – fellow nationalists.
They are campaigning in the European Parliament elections on 23-26 May.
Competing in different countries, they plan to form a parliamentary group – the European Alliance for People and Nations – to challenge the power of centrist parties.
