A “wave of new parties” is currently rocking the European Union member states: Looking only at the elections in 2015, 2016 and 2017, in 23 EU member states 31 new political parties have entered national parliaments. Political parties such as the Italian Five Star Movement, the Spanish Ciudadanos and Podemos, the German Alternative für Deutschland, the Greek parties To Potami, ANEL or the left Syriza as well as the French La République en Marche are part of this wave. How does the emergence of those new parties affects the existing party systems and the stability of party systems, as well as the political parties at the European level?
