Is DiEM25 a political party?
DiEM25 will always remain a movement. To the question of whether we have an ‘electoral wing’ with which to compete in elections, the answer is: Not yet, but we’re proposing to develop one!
We want to see our ambitious agenda implemented across Europe. In order to promote this agenda, we use a variety of actions, from street protests to petitions to op-eds to conversations with political actors.
Currently, DiEM25 members are debating whether DiEM25 should additionally develop party branches in some or all countries, in order to push our agenda in places where no existing political force is ready and able to represent it. This question will be settled in an all-member vote in November.
