The European Green Party is a transnational political party having as its members Green parties from European countries (although not necessarily from European Union member states). Parties can also become candidates and associates.
The most important bodies of the EGP are the Council and the Committee.
It is responsible for political affairs between congresses and it decides over organizational matters, such as the election of committee, the application of members and associates and candidates of the European Green Party.
The Committee consists of nine members elected by the member parties, including two spokespersons (one man and one woman) and a secretary-general. They are responsible for daily political affairs, the execution of the council's decisions and the activities of the secretariat.
The member parties also form regional networks such as Balkan Network ( "a network for Green Parties in the wider Balkan region" ), the Baltic Sea Greens, the Green Mediterranean Network. Working Groups are also formed of persons nominated by the parties to address specific policy issues and to present policy papers for approval by the Council.
The EGP have an obligation to openess and transparency and we are obliged to publish the budget, accounts and auditor's reports. This is provided to the public in the same format as it is provided to the European Parliament.
