Europe United Party was a pan-European political party which aims to achieve a stronger and more accountable European Union and especially a democratically elected European Commission, a more transparent European Council and a stronger, more representative and effective European Parliament.[1] It is now incorporated in the European Federalist Party created on November 6, 2011 in Paris.

Europe United was founded as a pro-European organisation in 2005 by Copenhagen (Denmark).[2] After the Copenhagen convention, the first election to Europe United's internal policy-making body, the Senate, was held. Tomas Ruta got most votes out of the thirty elected senators.

The President and the board of Europe United are elected by a Convention for a two-year period and function as the party's European-level management. Their prime responsibilities are overall strategic leadership and operational leadership of the party's administration and organisational functions.

So far, only a limited political program with a focus on democratization of the EU was presented but the party is currently in the process of expanding its political program. Agreement on a broad selection of political issues was found at the last Convention in Leuven (Belgium) in December 2009 and a final vote on the political program of Europe United is currently planned for the next Convention in Salzburg (Austria) in May 2010.[3]

Europe United presented five candidates for the European Elections 2009 but failed to secure any seats in the elections.
