It is not really a well-kept secret among the European Union, that the turnout for the impending elections to the European Parliament, will once again be disappointing.
Since 1979, the turnout has been constantly decreasing, although the Parliament’s power has gained momentum. So how can an institution that has gained significant political power and recognition be that unpopular with the masses?
The answer to the million-dollar question is, as one would expect with the EU, quite complicated. Like the Union itself, its elections are being held in a way that is almost impossible to follow.
“Not even the media can properly, fully understand all that is being decided every day in the EU institutions. It takes a lot of research, time, and deep geo-political knowledge, in order to fully grasp the actual meaning of the Elections.”, Niels Vale, the Editor at Foreign Desk, DR – Danish Broadcasting. Former correspondent in Brussels & Rome said.
