Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Europe Ecologie's huge success in the European election has been due to the fact that it was the only organisation/party campaigning on - guess what - European issues (as well as environmental ones). It was also due to their new image distantiating itself from the Greens' internal squabbles and to their capacity to bring together personalities kike Bové and Joly. They managed to maintain this image/narrative for the regional elections, with success.

Until recently, the Greens lacked a credible economic and social programme. Their economic narrative was limited to the promotion of social economy and their social narrative was more or less recycling old extreme-left slogans. Hopefully, this is changing, too.
