Frustration rife ahead of European elections

A new European Parliament will be elected in May 2014. In view of the crisis the election will be the most important of its kind in recent decades, the left-liberal daily Delo asserts: "The crisis announces a shock for the political establishment. Frustration is so rife among Europeans that these elections will break new ground. Dissatisfaction with the way the crisis has been handled has reinforced Euroscepticism in almost all the member states and undermined the power of the mainstream parties. Nowadays politics is just an appendage of the economy, and democracy is practically a thing of the past. The public sector is being dismantled, the welfare state is disappearing. This is no longer just the same old criticism of the Brussels bureaucracy and a democracy deficit. Rejection of Germany's dictates, the troika, liberalism and the current economic policy is also spreading."
