DiEM25 and Demokratie in Bewegung are joining forces to contest the May 2019 European Parliament elections. It is our conviction that the current crisis of the EU can only be tackled if all progressive forces — in Germany as across the continent — join the European Spring.

The German electoral wing of European Spring is joined by parties in France, Denmark, Poland, and Portugal: a coalition that grows by the day to fight for democracy and solidarity in Europe. To that end, we are participating in the election with a common Spitzenkandidat, joint programme and common campaign.

DiEM25 Germany already has an electoral wing known as Demokratie in Europa, which is the only true transnational alternative to the
right-wing zealots and the neoliberal establishment. Following a membership vote, the German electoral list will be supported by the DiEM25 electoral wing as well as our friends in Demokratie in Bewegung (DiB), as decided by large majorities in the respective parties. The next general assembly in Hannover at the end of this month will formalise the collaboration.

In the coming weeks we will work tirelessly on the electoral programme and the pursuit of strong candidates to run for the May 2019 European Parliament elections.
