    The leaders of Austria’s Freedom Party (FPÖ), Czechia’s ANO, and Hungary’s Fidesz announced the formation of new political grouping in the European Parliament at a joint press conference in Vienna last Sunday. The alliance that will officially launch on Monday, called “Patriots for Europe,” intends to unite the anti-globalist right to strengthen the movement for sovereignty among EU member states.

    Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, former Czech Prime Minister Andrej Babiš, and Austrian opposition leader Herbert Kickl said that they hope the new alliance entice others to join. Their goal is to create the largest nationalist political group in the European Parliament. So far this week, Belgium’s Vlaams Belang Party, Spain’s Vox Party, Denmark’s People’s Party, the Netherland’s Party for Freedom, led by Geert Wilders, and Portugal’s Chega Party.

    In a post on X, formerly Twitter, Netherland’s Party for Freedom leader Geert Wilders, victor of the recent elections in that country, explained, “We are PVV-patriots, we love our nation. Strong and sovereign. Resisting illegal immigration. We defend peace and freedom... We protect our Judeo-Christian heritage. And our families. We want to combine forces in the EP and will proudly join #PatriotsforEurope!”

    France’s National Rally, led by Marine LePen,  will also join the pro-freedom coalition. The announcement was made on Sunday by party leader Jordan Bardella.

    “Today we are creating a political formation that will ‘forge ahead’ and very quickly become the strongest grouping and largest faction of the European right,” Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said at the press conference. In a post on X, he later added, “We patriots love our country for its own sake. We are not against anyone, but we don’t want a Europe that takes away, diminishes, erases everything that is important to us as patriots.”

    Austrian leader Herbert Kickl affirmed, “We will not stand idly by and watch the emergence of a European superstate in which the parliaments of the member states degenerate into a kind of folklore, where sovereignty and the self-determination of individual states are empty phrases. We want a Europe that once again shows itself and develops with pride, values, traditions, and diversity… Europe does not want to be left to Macron, Von der Leyen or some left-wing experiment.”
