2024: Election Year UK, Rep. of Ireland, EU & USA

In 2024 several important elections are scheduled, for the United Kingdom, the Republic of Ireland, the European Union, and the United States of America. These elections may hold great significance as they have the potential to shape the political landscape and determine the future course of these nations, their relations with each other the global environment and international security as an expectation of rising conflict between global communities.

In the United Kingdom, the election will decide the country's political identity, leadership and destiny, as the expectation is for a change in government, which will need to steer the four countries of England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Scotland through crucial times of inevitable change, international tensions and challenges, as well as multiple complex challenges at home. The General Election will focus on the battle between the Conservative Party and Labour Party: will it be the predicted annihilation for Rishi Sunak’s party with Keir Starmer turning England, Wales & Scotland red? Will the Scottish National Party fare better than the Conservatives?

The Republic of Ireland will elect its representatives. Sinn Féin is polled to be offered a mandate to lead the Island of Ireland on both sides of the border for the first time. Sinn Féin is ‘dedicated to Irish unity and the building of a new republic based on the principles of freedom, justice and equality.’

The European Union will hold elections predicted to influence the entire political landscape of the EU and its future direction as there is an expectation that many EU countries will swing to the political Right: ‘populist radical right parties gaining votes and seats across the EU, and centre-left and green parties losing votes and seats. Anti-European populists are likely to top the polls.’

Lastly, the United States of America will witness another presidential election between the two old rivals Biden and Trump, with polls saying the results are too close to call. These elections could mark a crucial turning point in the political history of these nations, with far-reaching consequences for their citizens and the global community, especially regarding nations such as Russia, Ukraine, and Israel/Gaza.
