Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Display:
  • Germany's ÖDP is a Christian-conservative environmentalist party (IIRC a Greens breakaway from ages ago) whose elected MEP declared that he will join a "non-extremist" group that opposes the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership and supports renewables, and the decision won't be made before a party congress next month. I can't see how he can twist his own conditions to join EPP instead of Greens/EFA.
  • What's the criteria for you for a "new party" on the list? DK (S&D), Együtt-PM and LMP (Greens/EFA) from Hungary are all new, too, and AFAIK only LMP had a European party affiliation before. NOVA (ECR) from Slovakia is also new.

BTW, I corrected "rascist" to racist.

Upon checking, they existed under a different name from 1978, took part in the formation of the Greens in 1980, and left the same year, and changed their name to the present one in 1982. They survived in local politics in Southern Germany.

One more for the Greens then.

The criteria is that they are in the "New parties
w/o affiliation" in this table. I assume that the parties that are sorted by the wikipedia editors are correctly sorted.

I'd put a question mark after "(ÖDP) Green", though. Meanwhile, you can remove the question mark for Bulgaria's RB, they are definite EPP.

Done. You don't happen to know anything about BBTs, Bulgaria Without Censorship?

I found that they requested EPP membership but weren't accepted. From what I have seen, their populism is both social (rejection of austerity and flat tax) and nationalist-racist (anti-Roma).
