EHB was officially launched on 10 June 2012 in Donostia by five founding components: Eusko Alkartasuna, Aralar, Alternatiba, Sortu, and independents of ezker abertzalea (groups and independent individuals from the Basque leftist-nationalist milieu, most of whom had been members of Batasuna), all of whom had been previously members of the Amaiur coalition. On 3 July 2012 Laura Mintegi was chosen as candidate for Lehendakari in the 2012 Basque parliamentary election. Mintegi, a professor at the University of the Basque Country, formerly stood as a candidate for Herri Batasuna.
