Europe's populist wave
has finally reached the shores of Spain with right-wing and eurosceptic parties now represented in 23 out of 28 EU member states. Vox won 10.3 percent of the vote in Spain's general election last Sunday which gained the party 24 seats in the country's national congress. The only countries left in the EU without such parties in government are Ireland, Malta, Portugal, Romania and Croatia.
The following infographic provides an overview of the relentless rise of populism
across Europe with a specific focus on the results of far-right parties in the most recent legislative elections. As mentioned above, Vox is present on the list after last weekend, even though the party fell short of the larger gains it had hoped for. The biggest right-wing gains were recorded in in 2015 when the Law and Justice Party (PiS) won a majority of power in Poland.
