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, Christian Union and SGP are eurosceptic and morally conservative. Both political parties have candidates on the common list.

History[edit]

The Reformed Political Alliance (GPV) and the Reformed Political Party (SGP) first tried to enter the European Parlement on their own in the 1979 European Parliament elections In 1984 they formed a common list together with the Reformed Political Party (RPF). The RPF-GPV-SGP parliamentary common list got their 1st seat in the 1984 European Parliament elections.

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 elections was the first time they took part under this name.
