EU Economic Affairs Commissioner Pierre Moscovici is expecting a "populist breakthrough" in the European elections.

Given that the pro-European forces are weakened and don't work together, a populist win is the most likely scenario, Moscovici said in an interview on Monday.

In addition, The French ex-minister excluded supporting his Socialist party.

He seemed to be suggesting that Social Democrats should vote for president Emmanuel Macron, as he has co-opted many Social Democratic ideas.
