ENG: European United Left–Nordic Green Left (EUL-NGL) is a left-wing political group with seats in the European Parliament since 1995.
The GUE-NGL is a confederal group: it is composed of MEPs from national parties. Those national parties must share common political objectives with the group, as specified in the group's constituent declaration. Nevertheless, those national parties, not the group, retain control of their MEPs. Thus, the Group may be divided on certain issues.
Members of the group meet regularly to prepare for meetings, debate on policies and vote on resolutions. The group also publishes reports on various topics.
Ideology: Socialism, Eco-socialism
Chairman: Lothar Bisky
