Left Party (Germany) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (1853 words)
Between 1990 and 2005 the party's PDS predecessor had been seen as the leftwing "party of the East", and whilst achieving minimal support in western Germany regularly won 15-25% of the vote in eastern Germany, entering coalition government (with the SPD) in two of eastern Germany's five states.
At European level the PDS co-founded the European Left alliance of parties, and the Left Party is the largest party in the European Parliament's European United Left/Nordic Green Left parliamentary group.
The party continues to win eastern voters by emphasizing political competence and refuses to be labelled as merely a "protest party," although certainly the party attracted millions of protest voters in the federal election, profiting from growing dissatisfaction with high unemployment and cutbacks in health insurance, unemployment benefits, and workers' rights.
