“Towards the Europe of common sense” is the slogan of a far-right rally set to take place in Milan this Saturday, ahead of the European Parliament elections on May 26. The rally, seen as an attempt to unite Europe’s right-wing parties, is organised by Italy’s hardline Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Matteo Salvini.

Salvini, leader of Italy’s right-wing Lega party, will be joined by the leader of France’s far-right National Rally, Marine Le Pen, as well as far-right parties across Europe, including German MEP Jörg Meuthen of the Alternative for Germany and other representatives from Austria, the Netherlands, Denmark, Belgium, Bulgaria, Slovakia, the Czech Republic, Estonia, and Finland.

They are united in their opposition to immigration, multiculturalism, the political left and the EU, but are split on other key issues, such as EU’s economic policy.

Salvini and Le Pen met in Paris in April this year where they defined the goals of the European right ahead of the elections: to win 120-150, or 24-30 percent seats in the 751-seat European Parliament, which would enable them to have influence on the decision-making process in the next assembly.

EU’s right-wing parties are expected to round-off their election campaign with a joint manifest, which would illustrate their vision for the future of EU.

Currently, right-wing nationalist parties have their representatives in three groups in the European Parliament – Europe of Nations and Freedom (ENF), which includes Le Pen’s National Rally and Salvini’s Lega and is the smallest in the Parliament with only 36 seats, European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR), with 76 seats, and Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy, which has 42 seats in the Parliament.
