Who are the Greens/European Free Alliance (G/EFA)?

The Greens/European Free Alliance (G/EFA) are the main environmentalist grouping within the European Parliament. Following the 2019 European Parliament elections, the Greens are the fourth-largest grouping in the Parliament, having increased their seats from 52 to 68 (out of 705). The G/EFA benefited from the performance of the German Green Party in the 2019 elections, which came second with 25 seats, up from 11 previously.
