European groups

The Alliance of Liberals and Democrats for Europe became the biggest group in the Netherlands, after a electoral loss for the parties in European People's Party–European Democrats and European Socialists group.
The European Greens–European Free Alliance lost a seat, despite GreenLeft winning a seat. This because Europe Transparent, which sat in the European Greens-EFA group did not take part this election. Newcomer Party for Freedom is not part of a European group and is under Non-Inscrits. The ChristianUnion-SGP was in the Independence/Democracy group, but this group did not meet the requirements to be a group in the European Parliament and was dissolved. The ChristianUnion and SGP entered talks with the European Conservatives after the elections. The SGP was asked to chance there stance on women issues, but declined. After that the ChristianUnion joined the European Conservatives on its own. The ChristianUnion and Reformed Political Party split after 25 years cooperation into two group in the European parliament.
