Results from the 23-26 May EU elections will not be published before late Sunday evening, final numbers not before Monday morning. Polls continue to indicate a loss of the conservatives' and social democrats' traditional majority while right-wing and left-wing Eurosceptics could gain more than 35% of the seats in the next EP. We do not expect any Council decisions on the next Commission President and other key positions before the June 20-21 summit. But negotiations between leaders on the EU's top jobs could last much longer and also a lengthy standoff between the Council and Parliament over the "Spitzenkandidaten" procedure cannot be excluded.

The May European Parliament elections could see Germany's conservative CDU/CSU and Social Democrats lose a substantial share of votes compared to the last round in 2014, whereas the Greens could overtake the SPD and become the second strongest party. Compared to European peers, the appeal of the far-right AfD to German voters remains far more limited. Still, the AfD could expand its share and rank fourth, followed by the Liberals and the far-left Leftist party. Shifts of voters' support between centrist parties will not have a substantial impact on Germany's generally pro-European stance. However, these parties still represent different views on the future of the EU, e.g. regarding further EMU deepening. [mehr]

Soft and hard EU(ro)sceptic as well as anti-establishment parties could account for one-quarter up to one-third of the seats in the next EP, according to our updated poll-based projections. We have doubts about whether Eurosceptic and nationalistic groups in the EP will be able to overcome their previous discrepancies and build a significantly more united bloc. However, even without a joint agenda, Eurosceptics could make coalition building (as on the national level) much more complex and increasingly split the next EP into two camps. [mehr]

In the competition for global leadership in technologies like artificial intelligence, most observers see a two-horse race – between China and the United States. But what about Europe? Can it ever catch up to the galloping favorites? It won’t be easy. The digital economy in the United States has big advantages: a large domestic market, a risk-taking investment culture, and plenty of innovative companies and world-class universities. US tech giants were first-movers out of the gates, and used the network effects of the platform economy to dominate not only the US, but many other markets worldwide. [mehr]

The outcome of the EU elections and the composition of the new Parliament will significantly influence the nomination and election of the next President of the European Commission (EC). Parliament will vote for the Council's proposed candidate in a secret ballot with a majority of component MEPs required. The election of the Commission President will be particularly challenging this year. Given the projected new balance of power after the elections both within the EP and within the Council as well as between the EP and the EU Council, an institutional stalemate cannot be ruled out.

Ahead of the May 23–26 European Parliament elections, the EU is surrounded by internal and external challenges, its leaders increasingly divided, and its integrity and credibility challenged by Eurosceptic and anti-European groups across the continent. An extension of Article 50 could push the Brexit date close to or even beyond the European elections. Under EU treaties the UK would then be required to participate in the vote. The implications for the next EP – both if the UK agreed and refused to hold elections – could bear risks for the unanimity required in the European Council for an extension of Article 50 beyond the election date.

Europa droht, im globalen Wettrennen um die Vorherrschaft bei Schlüsseltechnologien wie künstlicher Intelligenz von den USA und China abgehängt zu werden. Obwohl die Ursachen dieses Rückstandes sowohl auf Seiten der Wirtschaft als auch der Politik oftmals gut verstanden sind, gerät die Aufholjagd bislang nur stockend in Fahrt. Woran das liegt und welche Implikationen ein weiteres Zurückfallen für Europas Wohlstand und Wettbewerbsfähigkeit hat, beleuchtet DB Research-Ökonom Kevin Körner im Gespräch mit results, dem Unternehmer-Magazin der Deutschen Bank.

Kevin Koerner, Volkswirt für Europapolitik, beschreibt, dass deutsche Post-Millennials sich kaum an Zeiten erinnern können, als Angela Merkel noch nicht Bundeskanzlerin war. Nach Merkels Ankündigung, bei der nächsten Bundestagswahl nicht mehr anzutreten, untersuchen wir, was ihre Kanzlerschaft für Deutschland bedeutet und welche Auswirkungen ihr Abschied von der politischen Bühne haben wird.

Der Zugewinn EU(ro)skeptischer Parteien in aktuellen Umfragen lässt erahnen, was in der bevorstehenden Europawahl erwartet werden kann. Basierend auf aktuellen Zahlen könnten diese einen wesentlichen Zuwachs ihres Sitzanteils im Europäischen Parlament verbuchen. Ob es ihnen jedoch gelingen wird, im Gesetzgebungsorgan der EU eine geeinte Gruppe zu bilden und mit einer Stimme zu sprechen, bleibt abzuwarten. Pro-europäische Kräfte, vor allem um den französischen Staatspräsidenten Macron, haben die Herausforderung angenommen und könnten den anti-europäischen Kräften unter dem Banner einer gemeinsamen Kampagne entgegentreten.

Accelerated by the consequences of the financial/economic and migration crisis, the influence of anti-European, anti-migration movements with a populist playbook in the EU is growing. For the EU, the next crucial stocktaking of voters’ sentiment will be the 2019 elections for the European Parliament on 23-26 May. The European political landscape and with it the composition of national parliaments in the EU member states has changed over the last five years and in some countries substantially so. These shifts can be expected to be reflected in the next European Parliament as well, and – as already the case in the Council – impact European policymaking. [mehr]

Der Ausbau der digitalen Infrastruktur in der EU erfolgte in den letzten Jahren weniger schnell und umfangreich als politisch angestrebt. Die EU dürfte das Ziel verfehlen, bis 2020 alle EU-Bürger mit Breitbandanschlüssen über 30 Megabit pro Sekunde zu versorgen. Für den unzureichenden Infrastrukturausbau gibt es wirtschaftliche und politisch-regulatorische Gründe. Doch eine unzureichende digitale Infrastruktur schmälert die Erfolgsaussichten hiesiger Unternehmen vor allem gegenüber der US-Konkurrenz, aber zunehmend auch gegenüber chinesischen Wettbewerbern. Die EU-Kommission schätzt das Investitionsvolumen für die angestrebte „Gigabit-Gesellschaft“ auf mehr als EUR 500 Mrd. bis 2025. [mehr]
