Brussels, 12 January 2017
Commenting on the decision taken by the Member of the European Parliament from the Five Star Movement, Marco Affronte, to join the Greens - European Free Alliance (Greens/EFA) group in the European Parliament as an independent member, the Co-Chair of the European Green Party Monica Frassoni said:
“On behalf of the European Green Party, I welcome Marco Affronte as a new member of the Greens/EFA group.
We hope this step will deepen our fruitful cooperation, as our positions proved to be very close on several issues in the past two and a half years. We are convinced that the next months will be particularly relevant to ensuring a strong Green oriented action in Europe and Italy.”
