What is MERA25?

MERA25 is the name shared by all of DiEM25’s national political parties, which let us contest elections directly. Because we’re not just a movement of radical ideas. We’re also about putting those ideas into practice.

These parties are very different from the old ones they were built to replace. Every major decision regarding a MERA25 party – from its foundations, to its programme, to its candidate list – is subject to a vote by all our members. Wherever they live, whatever passport they hold. It’s true internationalism in action.

Currently, we have three MERA25 parties: in Greece, in Germany and in Italy. Learn more about them below.


Our first political party, MERA25 Greece was founded in 2018 and entered the Hellenic Parliament in 2019 after receiving almost 200,000 votes in its first election.


MERA25 Germany was founded in Berlin in November 2021, and has campaigned at state-level elections in Bremen and Hessen.


MERA25 Italy was founded in November 2022 – weeks after Italy elected its most right-wing government since World War II – with the mission of rebuilding left-wing solidarity in Italian politics.
