  • The Left (German: Die Linke), also commonly referred to as the Left Party (German: Linkspartei), is a democratic socialist political party in Germany. The party was founded in 2007 as the merger of the Party of Democratic Socialism (PDS) and the Electoral Alternative for Labour and Social Justice (WASG).Since mid-2012, its co-chairs have been Katja Kipping and Bernd Riexinger. In the Bundestag the party has 64 out of 630 seats after polling 8.6% of the vote in the 2013 federal elections. Its parliamentary group is therefore the third largest among the four groups in the German Bundestag, and the leading opposition group. The Left is a founder member of the Party of the European Left, and is the largest party in the European United Left–Nordic Green Left (GUE/NGL) group in the European Parliament.The party is the most left-wing party of the four represented in the Bundestag, and has been called far-left by German government authorities and different international media. Some of its internal factions are under observation by some states' or the federal Verfassungsschutz (constitutional protection) authorities on account of suspected extremist tendencies. In Bavaria, the entire party is under surveillance.According to official party figures, the Left Party had 63,784 registered members as of December 2013, making it the fourth-largest party in Germany.The party participates in government in the states of Brandenburg, as minor partner to the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD), and in Thuringia with the SPD and The Greens in a three-party coalition with The Left parliamentarian Bodo Ramelow serving as Minister-President.

  • The Left (German: Die Linke), also commonly referred to as the Left Party (German: Linkspartei), is a democratic socialist and left-wing populist political party in Germany. The party was founded in 2007 as the merger of the Party of Democratic Socialism (PDS) and the Electoral Alternative for Labour and Social Justice (WASG).Since mid-2012, its co-chairs have been Katja Kipping and Bernd Riexinger. In the Bundestag the party has 64 out of 630 seats after polling 8.6% of the vote in the 2013 federal elections and, after the Social Democrats and Conservatives formed a coalition government, became leader of the opposition. Its parliamentary group is the third largest among the four groups in the German Bundestag, ahead of the Greens. The Left is a founding member of the Party of the European Left, and is the largest party in the European United Left–Nordic Green Left (GUE/NGL) group in the European Parliament.The party is the most left-wing party of the four represented in the Bundestag, and has been called far-left by the Guardian, but according to the German Federal Office for the Protection of the Constitution, the party is not to be regarded as extremely left or a threat to democracy. However, some of its internal factions, such as Socialist Left, are under observation by some states' and federal Verfassungsschutz authorities for the protection of the constitution on account of suspected extremist tendencies. In Bavaria, the entire party is under surveillance.According to official party figures, the Left Party had 63,784 registered members as of December 2013, making it the fourth-largest party in Germany.The party participates in governments in the states of Brandenburg, as junior partner to the Social Democratic Party of Germany (SPD); Thuringia with the SPD and The Greens in a three-party coalition with The Left parliamentarian Bodo Ramelow serving as Minister-President; and Berlin with the SPD and Greens in a three-party coalition, led by Michael Müller of the SPD.
