Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Thank you, updated. You did not say what groups KNP would be interested in, so I moved them to EFD but left the question mark.

Anyway, looks like ECR is pinching the small EFD parties or the small ones are abandoning ship. Either way, the current EFD looks like they will have a hard time reaching the seven countries limit, being squeezed between ECR and the possible Front National group. Then again Front National will not have an easy time forming a group either, in particular if they reject the outright fascists.

I just found on EAF wiki page such sentence:

"Racial and anti-Semitic European nationalist parties National Democratic Party of Germany, the British National Party, Greek Golden Dawn, Hungarian Jobbik and Bulgarian Атака are not permitted to join"

About EFD they now have only 4 parties so probably EFD will collapse soon. Even with KNP which is not so keen to join Farage (they have ambitions to form alternative alliance, I don't know how and why but I have heard such rumors). Also I don't see who else Le Pen can be "catched up" to her fraction. Order and Justice as far as I can read from AWPL page (Electoral Action of Poles in Lithuania) don't have bad relations with AWPL, they together form current Lithuanian government so ECR have chance to take from post-EFD another party. Reformed Political Party from Netherlands probably will also join ECR after EFD collapse as they are part of European Christian Political Movement. I don't know how it will be with other, smaller parties but I don't think that EFD will survive neither Le Pen will form fraction.
