Le parti du Brexit en tête au Royaume-Uni — Elections Européennes

27 Mai, 2019, 11:07 | Auteur: Auguste Feret

Le scrutin semble en revanche avoir durement sanctionné le Parti conservateur de la Première ministre Theresa May, relégué à la 5e place avec 7,5% des voix, payant ainsi son incapacité à mettre en oeuvre le Brexit. Les formations pro-européennes se comporteraient relativement bien. Avec 18,9% des voix qui iraient aux Libéraux-démocrates (LibDem) et 19,1% aux travaillistes du Labour, ces deux partis emporteraient respectivement 14 et 15 sièges.

Le dernier souffle des Britanniques?

En réaction, les voisins irlandais du Royaume Uni ont massivement opté pour la liste pro-Europe.

Après avoir poussé à l'organisation du référendum de 2016 puis s'être mis en retrait, l'eurosceptique entend profiter de la large victoire de son parti aux élections européennes pour s'immiscer dans les négociations sur la sortie du Royaume-Uni de l'Union européenne. Mais il n'a pas les moyens de peser sur les décisions au niveau national avec une petite poignée de députés seulement.

L'autre grand parti traditionnel, le parti travailliste (opposition), sort également meurtri du scrutin, avec 13,7% des voix, payant lui son attitude ambiguë sur le Brexit. Quant aux Verts, ils arrivent à devancer les conservateurs avec un score honorable de 11,6 %. Elle a alors a dû demander son report, au 31 octobre au plus tard. Il a capitalisé sur la colère des électeurs face à l'interminable feuilleton du Brexit. Soit 10 points de plus que son précédent, l'Ukip, lors du scrutin européen de 2014.

A year ago with the AA New Hampshire Fisher Cats he hit.255, knocked in 99 runs and had 26 homers, also swiping 20 bases. Jansen was given the reigns at the catching position when Canadian Russell Martin was sent to the L.A.

"Pour honorer le vote démocratique du peuple et les promesses qui ont été faites, la seule chose que nous puissions faire est de sortir (de l'UE) avec les termes de l'OMC", a-t-il déclaré pendant la campagne.

Le Brexit Party serait à 31,6%, ce qui lui permettrait d'occuper 24 des 73 sièges britanniques au Parlement européen.

La nouvelle victoire de Nigel Farage ne peut que conforter l'aile europhobe du Parti conservateur, favorable à une coupure nette avec l'UE. Et il a dans tous les cas demandé dès dimanche soir à "faire partie de l'équipe de négociations (avec l'Union Européenne, ndlr) afin que ce pays soit prêt à partir quelles que soient les circonstances". S'exprimant après l'annonce des premiers résultats, Nigel Farage a fait savoir qu'il voulait que sa formation soit impliquée dans les négociations du Brexit et qu'il se préparait à des élections législatives.

Les Tories sont désormais plongés dans une lutte féroce pour la succession de Theresa May, avec déjà huit prétendants sur les rangs.
