    Potential Right-Wing Alliance in the European Parliament: ECR Faction Discussions

    Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki has hinted at the possibility of a coalition between his European Conservatives and Reformists (ECR) party and the Identity and Democracy (ID) group, reports Politico. The final decision will be determined by the outcomes of the upcoming European elections, according to Morawiecki.

    When questioned at a conference in Brussels, the former Polish premier said that “it takes to two tango” indicating that all members of the ECR group would need to agree on any potential partnership. Morawiecki emphasized that his party treats all discussions with the utmost respect.

    The Brussels conference, hosted by the ECR, was notably attended by several members from the ID group. According to Politico, the event revealed significant common ground between the two factions, particularly in their criticism of the migration pact, bureaucracy, and the Green Deal.

    Furthermore, Morawiecki expressed his support for Hungary’s Fidesz party, currently a member of the ECR, to continue in the faction in the new legislative term. He remarked, “We are talking very intensively and I hope Viktor will join our group, but it’s his decision and it’s the decision of our delegations as well,” referencing Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban.
