A combination made in Paris on May 26, 2014 of eight files pictures shows (from L to R, top to bottom), chairman of the True Finns party Timo Soini, leader of the German neo-Nazi party NPD Udo Voigt, Greece’s Golden Dawn spokesman and parliament member Ilias Kasidiaris, United Kingdom Independence Party (UKIP) leader Nigel Farage, leader of right-wing Austrian Freedom Party (FPOe) party Heinz-Christian Strache, Chairman of Hungarian far-right parliamentary JOBBIK (Better) party Gabor Vona, Danish Peoples Party’s Morten Messerschmidt and France’s far-right National Front (FN) leader Marine Le Pen. France’s far-right National Front and Britain’s UKIP led a eurosceptic “earthquake” in EU parliamentary polls, sending shockwaves across Europe and beyond. The EU Parliament’s own projections showed the extent of the anti-EU breakthrough, with eurosceptic parties set to win around 140 seats in the 751-seat assembly. AFP PHOTO
