The European elections were overshadowed by the national and regional elections in Belgium which saw the country very much divided between the right-leaning Flemish north and the French-speaking south which saw the far left make significant gains.

The result of the European elections reflect the result of the regional and federal elections. For Flanders, N-VA remains the biggest party with 3 seats. However, the winner is Vlaams Belang with 12.4%, gaining two extra seats. Groen wins 1.8% but that is not enough to get a second seat. This means that veteran Bart Staes will no longer be an MEP.

On The French-speaking side, Ecolo (ecologists) and the extreme left PTB are the winners and gain an extra seat. MR and PS both lose a seat and have 2 left.

Dit land heeft een fundamentele omvorming nodig, niet een zo links mogelijke regering om nog een paar jaar aan te modderen.

De @PSofficiel durft het niet aan om de waarheid, die zonneklaar is, aan haar achterban uit te leggen', zegt @Bart_DeWever. #terzaketv

.@joachimcoens benadrukt dat ons land voor grote uitdagingen staat. Die spelen zowel op budgettair, sociaal-economisch als klimaatvlak. "CD&V past voor "fronten" en oorlogstaal. Maar als men een Nederlandstalige meerderheid blijft onmogelijk maken, dan is er een groot probleem."
