Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
  • 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.
