Coverage of the European election results has been dominated by the sight of triumphant Nigel Farage celebrating Ukip coming top of the poll in the UK and the Front National's Marine Le Pen celebrating her victory in France, as part of what some have called Europe's "lurch to the right".
Other countries saw the rise of much more sinister far-right groups, such as the neo-Nazi National Democratic Party in Germany and the anti-Semitic Jobbik in Hungary.
Despite the media's focus on the rise of the (far) right, it wasn't all bad news for the left, however. Some EU countries did buck the trend with anti-austerity, left-wing parties winning new supporters and new seats in the European Parliament.
So who are these left-wing exceptions to the right-wing rule?
