 European Left - Membership
In EU member states with no regional level it will be sufficient for a party or political organisation to have representatives on the municipal level, if a municipal parliament represents at least 20 percent of the country's population.

During that period each member party or political organization is free to adopt - for its own country - the most convenient approach and practical methods.

Any party conforming to these rules becomes eligible for a share of the €8.4m available from July 1, 2004, a figure which could be increased in future years.
To qualify, a “European political party” is obliged “to observe, in particular in its programme and in its activities, the principles on which the European Union is founded, namely the principles of liberty, democracy, respect for human rights and fundamental freedoms, and the rule of law.”
Their submission asserts that the rules for European Political Parties are discriminatory, that they are contrary to the European Convention on Human Rights, which guarantees “freedom of thought and conscience”, and that, amongst other breaches of Treaty on  European Union, they represent an unauthorised transfer of power to the EU.

We seek crossfertilization of theoretical and empirical work on political parties in Europe and beyond, with a central purpose: to understand the effect of European integration on national political party systems in East and West.

European Green parties are divided among themselves on fundamental issues such as how much power national governments should cede to EU bodies: The German Greens are federally minded, while the British and Scandinavian parties are more 'Euroskeptic.' The Danish Green party refused even to sign the common electoral platform.
I think all the parties are concerned, and will soon be asked to take common positions on the main political issues the New Europe is facing.
