Congratulations to my fellow Greens participating in the 2009 European Parliamentary elections. Ecolo in Belgium, Europe Écologie/Les Verts in France, the Socialist People's Party in Denmark, Bündnis90/Die Grünen in Germany and Sweden's Miljöpartiet de Gröna did particularly well. All got over 10% of the vote. Unfortunately, Comhaontas Glas in Ireland and Strana Zelenych in the Czech Republic, both in government, were trounced very soundly and did not receive any MEPs.
Also, congratulations to the Swedish Pirate Party for its strong showing and electing an MEP.
