History

It was founded on 16 November 1986. The party was formed as a national organisation of Green Lists which had first contested regional elections in 1985, initially being joined by seventy local lists.[2] In the 1987 general election, the Green Lists received 2.5% for the Chamber, returning thirteen deputies as well as two senators in the Senate.[2]

The party took part in the 1989 European Parliamentary elections, receiving 3.8% of the vote, electing 3 MEPs.[3] A rival ecologist list, the Rainbow Greens, received 2.4% in the same election.[4]

In December 1990 the party merged with the Rainbow Greens to form the Federation of the Greens.[5]
