IMF chief ‘worried’ about elections across Europe amid populist support rise

International Monetary Fund (IMF) chief Christine Lagarde has expressed concern over the flurry of upcoming elections across Europe, set against a backdrop of growing support for populist parties.

Major countries across Europe including Germany, France and the Netherlands will hold elections, creating uncertainty about the future state of the European Union (EU).

After the shock results of Brexit and Donald Trump becoming U.S. President, the international community is bracing itself for any result.

“I am worried, as we all are, about the outcome of some of these elections,” Lagarde told an audience at the World Government Summit in Dubai on Sunday.
