The Greens/European Free Alliance (Greens/EFA) is the political group in the European Parliament containing green and regionalist political parties. The group was formed following the 1999 European elections for the 5th European Parliament.
The Greens/EFA group consists of two distinct European political parties – the European Green Party (EGP) and the European Free Alliance (EFA). The EFA consists of parties representing stateless nations, regionalist and minority political interests. The Alliance has generally limited its membership to progressive parties. These European parties are joined by MEPs from non-aligned national parties, which have included the Dutch Europe Transparent (2004–2009) and the Swedish Pirate Party (2009–2014).
