Future Briefs: World Politics 2022 – The de-populist wave continues

As you may have noticed, the last “populists” on the planet are all in trouble. They are no longer in fashion obviously. The new generations propelled to the forefront of post-Covid shock societies do not recognise themselves in the populists. Opposition is better organised.

This is what we said two months ago about Eastern Europe, which could be much more Euro-compatible by 2022. And indeed Andrej Babis (Czech Republic) and Boïko Borissov (Bulgaria) have already been eliminated at the end of this year. It will soon be the emblematic Viktor Orban, the leader of Europe’s reviled pro-Russian “populism”, whose presidency will be put to the vote in April or May 2022, an election in which he will face a coalition of 6 parties that should make short work of him.
