2017, the year that can reshape Europe

In addition to the elections in Europe, here in South America, Chile and Ecuador will also choose new presidents.

With elections in three of its major countries – Germany, France and Italy – and the continuation of the Brexit process, 2017 is definitely an important year for Europe. A year in which the continent will decide whether to embark on a leap toward right-wing populism or bar this temptation and face its many problems. With a crippling economic recovery, affected by unemployment and encouraging frustration, many Europeans are becoming bored with traditional politicians and the rules dictated by the Brussels-based bureaucracy – the seat of the European Union. Add to this already bubbling broth the pressure exerted by the largest mass of immigrants that the continent has ever received in its history.

In addition to the elections in Europe, here in South America, Chile and Ecuador will also choose new presidents. With Michelle Bachelet in Chile and Rafael Corrêa in Ecuador, both countries have left-wing governments and can move to the right, following the movement initiated by the election of Maurício Macri in Argentina.
