German Pirate Jens Stomber referring on the founding of PPEU

The European Pirates (PIRATES) or European Pirate Party (PPEU) is an association of parties aspiring to be recognised as a European political party by the European Union. It was founded on 21 March 2014 at the European Parliament in Brussels in the context of a conference on "European Internet Governance and Beyond",[1] and consists of pirate parties of European countries. The parties cooperate to run a joint campaign for the 2014 European Parliament elections.[2]

The founding meeting elected Amelia Andersdotter, Swedish Member of the European Parliament for Piratpartiet, as the first chairperson.[3] The party's MEPs are in The Greens–European Free Alliance.[4]

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ Based on Czech Pirate Party's complaint, Supreme Administrative Court of the Czech Republic proposed to the Constitutional Court of the Czech Republic to cancel the 5 percent threshold, because vote percentage is enough for 1 seat (out of 21 seats). The proposition was declined.
  2. ^ Elected German Pirate MEP is Julia Reda (in the image on the right).
