Christian Union – Reformed Political Party (Dutch: ChristenUnie – Staatkundig Gereformeerde Partij) is a parliamentary common list for the European Parliament formed by two Dutch orthodox Protestant parties: the Christian Union and the Reformed Political Party. Both parties are eurosceptic and morally conservative, and each has candidates on the common list.

History[edit]

The Reformed Political Alliance (GPV) and the Reformed Political Party (SGP) first tried to enter the European Parliament on their own in the 1979 European Parliament election. In 1984 they formed a common list together with the Reformed Political Party (RPF). The RPF-GPV-SGP parliamentary common list got its first seat in the 1984 European Parliament election.

In 2001 RPF and the GPV merged into the Christian Union. After this merger the common list was renamed to Christian Union-SGP. The 2004 European election was the first time it took part under this name.
