  GREEN PARTY : Encyclopedia Entry
Green Parties are part of, but do not exclusively represent, a larger political movement to reform human governance to better fit the constraints of the biosphere — usually called the Green movement to contrast it from the electoral participation of the legally-registered Parties.
Many people also confuse Green Parties with Greenpeace, a global NGO prominent in the ecology movement, which like the Green political movement was founded in the 1970s, and shares some green goals and values, but works with different methods and is not organized as a political party.
Green Parties are often formed in a given jurisdiction by a coalition of scientific ecologists, community environmentalists, and local (or national) leftist groups or groups concerned with peace or citizens rights.

A Social Democrat win in Sweden, which belongs to the European Union but has not joined the euro single currency and is not a NATO member, would put the country at odds with nations such as France, Denmark, Italy and Portugal which have moved to the right in elections in the last two years.

 S/R 9: Standing on the Threshold of a Third Party Dream
That is because it is virtually impossible for minority parties or candidates to win a seat in a majoritarian winner-take-all system, no matter how small the district, since by virtue of our being a minority, we can not normally attract a majority of votes.
The Greens would decide who fills the seats by having a party caucus prior to the general election, in which they would elect their party's list.
As voters realized that voting for third parties was not a "wasted vote," more of them might stop selecting the "lesser of two evils" and pick their top choice.
