The European Federalist Party is a pro-European, pan-European and federalist political party which advocates further integration of the European Union through the establishment of a democratic and federal Europe.
The party was launched in Paris on 6 November 2011 as a merger of Europe United and the French Federalist Party. Its aim is to gather all Europeans to promote European federalism and to participate in all elections all over Europe. Its first electoral contest was the European Parliament election, 2014, in which it failed to secure a seat.
Representation at national and local levels
The EFP claims to be the first truly transnational party in Europe, with sections in 16 countries and electoral candidates across the continent. Its transnational credentials are rooted in its operation as a single party, rather than an alliance of national European parties. The EFP has national and regional sections in:
