Discussing the results of European parliament elections on the Channel 2 news.

These parties promote conservative values and have even shown disregard for human rights in their political rhetoric. The results are a setback for the political elite in Europe. The public has spoken and voiced its discontent with recent events within the EU. But also, importantly, a large part of the electorate has lost confidence in the ruling political elite and shown its frustration on both national and European level.
