1994 European Parliament Elections (1195 words)
In party political terms, the general picture emerging in the elections of June 1994 is one of consolidation of the Party of European Socialists (PES) as the largest group in the Parliament leading the left, and of fragmentation of the right and center-right.
The same left parties, notably communists, former communists or other left parties, held their own, and in the new European Parliament formed a single political group called the "Confederal United European Left" with 28 members of the former "Left Coalition" (largely orthodox communists) and of other reformist left parties.
However, the seats won by outright opponents of European integration is the same as before and has therefore fallen as a proportion of the larger Parliament.
