  • This time it's different? The prospects for change in the European elections - Dublin European Institute
    vote more sincerely and the level of punishment that a government receives depends on when in the national electoral cycle the EP elections take place Hobolt et al 2009 94 The elections are normally considered less important by many political actors and voters alike which means many people will simply not bother to turn out or take the opportunity to give the national government a warning rather than vote on European issues Reif 1985 9 They might also use the elections as an opportunity to register their dislike for the EU Ford et al 2012 226 Figure 2 Negative and Positive views of the EU source Eurobarometer What will this mean for the elections in May Piedrafita and Renman 2014 24 argue that it is likely that turnout will further decrease because of a lack of interest and information and because support for the EU has declined However even if a substantial group of eurosceptics is elected making it more difficult for mainstream parties to form a winning coalition it is unlikely that the eurosceptics will be able to organize themselves into one group Piedrafita Renman 2014 29 For example while the French eurosceptic party Front National polled first in an October 2013 opinion poll Pertusot Rittelmeyer 2014 4 they have already managed to alienate other populist parties because of their anti Semitic reputation Piedrafita Renman 2014 29 Additionally Eurobarometer figures fig 2 indicate that sceptics are still in the minority even in the most euroseceptic of countries Pirro 2014 16 Although what may be significant is that the eurosceptics could comprise a large number of MEPs who would be pre disposed to reject many of the proposals made by the Commission which could hinder the ability of the Parliament to pass legislation Stratulat Emmanouilidis 2013 9 10 argue that in order to change the narrative of the EP elections the pro EU parties must explain to the electorate why the EU matters and dismantle the myths which are put forward by the anti EU parties However there is little indication that this will happen as it is just over 2 months until the election and as of yet very little is visible in mainstream media Since the introduction of the Lisbon Treaty there has been considerable extension in powers of the Parliament most notably the increased use of the ordinary legislative procedure which increases the importance of the Parliament to almost level with the Council Piedrafita 2014 However as Adshed and Hill note many people do not know or care enough about the EU to engage 2005 538 Eurobarometer data indicates that people would be more likely to vote if they were better informed about the functioning of the Parliament and the EU as a whole Stratulat Emmanouilidis 2013 3 which shows that the knowledge gap is a barrier to breaking the trend of second order elections In conclusion while the upcoming EP elections are novel with the rise of the eurosceptic vote in the on going financial crisis
