Romania’s Far-Right AUR Targets European Profile with Bucharest Summit

Growing in support at home, AUR now wants a seat at the top table of European far-right parties.
Romania’s far-right Alliance for the Union of Romanians, AUR, plans to host like-minded parties from across Europe in Bucharest this month at a summit designed to forge ties and rally opposition to the supremacy of European Union law.

AUR burst onto the Romanian political stage in late December 2020 with the support of more than half a million voters.

With opinion polls suggesting it has since doubled its support to roughly 20 per cent of the electorate, AUR is now seeking a seat at the top table of major far-right and nationalist parties in Europe ahead of European parliamentary elections in 2024.
