Italian Interior Minister Matteo Salvini has announced his intention to form a grand alliance of populists from across Europe ahead of next years European Union parliamentary elections.
The populist leader of the League (Lega), which formed an anti-establishment coalition earlier this year with the Five Star Movement (M5S), made his comments on Friday, saying that he wanted to unite the populist parties to challenge the establishment parliamentary groups, Kronen Zeitung reports.
I want to unite the parties that will form the new majority in the European Parliament, the parties in Austria, the Netherlands, Sweden, France, and Germany, Salvini said.
The announcement comes only weeks after Salvini said that he aimed to make the League not only an Italian movement but also a European one.
I want to give voice to another kind of Europe, the Europe of the hope of work and certainty, and all the parties will have to choose which side to be on, he said, adding that the goal of the movement would be to free Europe from the globalist push for mass migration and failed economic policies.

[to] take over the EU.
The thing is that if you compare normal voting patterns...it’s usually 20-to-40 percent less on poll numbers for a EU election compared to a normal country election. If you can get all of your populist members to show up....you might be able to take 40 to 50 percent of the delegate count. That would be a shock.
