A New Scenario in Europe After Hollande's Victory and Monti's Competence
The Italian political system has collapsed and perhaps a new political era is coming. Two weeks ago, and this Sunday in some cities, the major political parties such as Berlusconi, the Party of Freedom, Right, Left Party and the Democratic Party, led by Bersani, were defeated.
The bipolarity of the Italian system has failed in the beats of vows and civil unrest, and the disappointment of this political class, too corrupt and incompetent. The third polo, which collected the moderates in the previous center, is swept away and the only winners are the solicitation and the new civic movement led by Beppe Grillo, a previous comic. Even the NYTimes has written about this new and growing civic phenomenon.
There are two other important elements that can help us understand the changing situation in Europe. France has a new president, the socialist Francois Hollande, who becomes the first Socialist to lead the French republic since 1995. The second is the defeat of the party of Chancellor Angela Merkel, the CDU, the main town of Germany, North Rhine Westphalia in Dusseldorf, where Hannelore Kraft, leader of the SPD, the party of social democracy, has won a historic victory.
Merkel and former President Sarkozy were the two leading advocates of austerity and a European Economic Policy too lonely and uncompromising. Only a month ago the leader of the European political group, Claude Juncker, Luxembourg, said he could not stand the alliance between France and Germany, called 'Markozy'.
Now Hollande, in France, and Monti, Italy, are the new actors of a different strategy in Europe. Obama also now very confident in this new in Europe and has more hope for the growth of the continent.
Greece is going to the second round of elections because the first did not come out with a winner. the two major historic parties have not been able to go beyond 50% and 7% of the boom has been the party of neo-Nazis and against the European directives. a clear protest vote. In Europe there is a new scenario for the future
