Abstract in different language: This paper presents the analysis of the 2019 European Parliament (EP) election manifestos of populist parties in V4 countries as a contribution to the contemporary discussion on political populism. The elections always allow for an interesting comparative view of populist parties in the context of the V4. The aim of the study is to analyze the election campaign programs which populist parties operating in individual V4 countries presented for EP elections in 2019. The paper is conceived as a qualitative content analysis of the official election programs of relevant populist parties and other sources of their communication. As authors we strive to identify topics that have been framed as a problem or risk on behalf of the Central European populists and the method in which these topics have been interpreted in their programs. As we found, especially the so-called “immigration crisis” and the contemporary state of the European Union are seen as most problematic by majority of the populists. On the other hand, majority of these parties do not want some Central European version of Brexit – their rhetorical goal is rather to reform the Union.
