The Rassemblement National (RN)
The Rassemblement National, which took over from the Front National in 2018, has established itself over the years as the leading party in France. Due to the two-round majority voting system, where traditional parties usually join forces to block it, its representation in the National Assembly remains below its real electoral strength, especially among the working classes.
The Rassemblement National fights for more national sovereignty, a limitation of immigration, a strengthening of national security and a particular attention to the republican pact.
Vlaams Belang has been established in the Flemish political landscape for several decades (since 2004 under this name), where it fights for an evolution towards the independence of Flanders, a fight against massive immigration that has changed the face of cities and villages and a desire to see a zero tolerance policy applied.
The Vlaams Belang thus triumphed in the last legislative elections of 2019, under the impulse of its young president Tom Van Grieken, and became the second largest party in Belgium.
Founded on 4 December 1989 following the merger of several regional autonomist movements in northern Italy, the Lega's main political objective was to make Italy a federal state.

As of mid 2019, a new president has been assigned named Norbert Hofer.
The political party was founded in 2007 by Veselin Mareshki as the Liberal Alliance, but only took its current name in 2016.
This new dynamic allowed the party to win 12 MPs in the 2017 parliamentary elections. Volya decided to support the government that was formed in the aftermath.
The party claims to be patriotic by defending the values of the Bulgarian people and fighting against immigration, is part of the populist current while claiming to be reformist, fights against endemic corruption and, on the diplomatic front, advocates a rapprochement with Russia.

For Britain is a positive, pro-British, pro-democracy party, which believes in preserving the culture and values of the decent British majority, and passing these on to future generations.

We seek to create a Britain where the rule of law is upheld, and justice prevails over political convenience. We will restore freedom of speech as the backbone of the democratic system. We sit neither on the Left nor the Right; we are the decent, fair, common sense majority whose voice has been ignored for too long.
