"The victory of the 'populist' parties in most European countries will enable us to form a strong patriotic faction in the EU Parliament. We should reach 25 percent of the total number of MEPs [members of parliament]," the politician said, commenting on the election results.
Meuthen said that all right-wing parties across the European Union agree on a number of issues, including their stance on illegal migration.
"We all agree with our political group partners on the migration issue or European politics: preserving democracy and national identity, preventing the creation of a 'United States of Europe,' dismantling the Brussels Moloch and protecting Europe by effectively restricting immigration," Meuthen explained.
According to the politician, the European Parliament is not "the representation of the citizens in its present form."
"They are completely under the influence of the European Commission, and the Eurocrats who want to impose multiculturalism and the loss of national identities. They do not care if it is in the interest of the citizens, they do not want to know," he said.
The elections to the European Parliament were held across the bloc from Thursday to Sunday. The combined voter turnout was almost 51 percent, the highest since 1994.
