EU Results: Green Party, Feminist Initiative, Pirates, etc.

Spiegel On-Line International notes that, “The 2009 elections to the European Parliament were marked by historically low voter turnout and victories for center-right and right-wing parties.” The full story and detailed results of all parties in all European Union countries from Spiegel are: here.

Green Party EU Results

Overall, in the European Union Elections, the Green Party elected 46 mp’s (plus one in Spain which is listed as a possible.)
The Green Party is an international movement. The Green Party of the United States (GP-US) is connected with other Green Parties through various organizations and associations. The basic values of the Green Party can be described with the four pillars: Non-violence; Social and Economic Justice; Ecological Wisdom and Grassroots Democracy.

The GP-US has sent a media update to its state chapters with a link to the European Greens website, which gives Green Party elections results for the European Union Parliament elections held this week. The chart is: here.

In most of the EU countries, the Green Party elected zero to two mp’s. Here are some of the more interesting results:

In France, the Green Party elected 13 mp’s. In Germany, 14 mp’s. In Ireland, the Green Party earned zero mp’s in the European Union election. And, separate reports from Ireland show that there was also a local backlash against the Green Party, who had made a coalition with the Fianna Fail. In Sweden, the Green Party doubled their mp’s to two. In the Netherlands, the Green Party elected 3 mp’s.

Other Interesting EU Results

In Sweden, the Feminist Initiative party, did not earn an mp. Though, it did make a big gain in its voting percentage. The story is: here.

Also of interest in Sweden, the Pirate Party – a new party which calls for online civil rights and reform of copyright law – gained a great victory by winning its first mp in the EU. The story is: here.

One Response

  1. The Pirate Party victory is a big deal, even though turnout was low across the board 20% of 20-30 year olds voted for the party. In other more troubling news the BNP rose to power in the UK though the press is quick to describe this as a protest vote check it out: http://www.newsy.com/videos/ahoy_european_parliament_sees_pirates_and_the_right
