The National Alliance has worked in the ECR group in European Parliament since this group was established in 2009. As each MEP can be full and substitute Member in a limited number of committees and other formations of the Parliament as the STOA panel, it is crucial to co-operate closely with colleagues in the same political group who are members in ITRE and STOA panel. Such close cooperation and efficient coordination amongst the ECR Members from different Member States and parties has been very successful so far to ensure that each party has possibility to put forward their main initiatives and defend their interests in each of parliamentary committees, also on behalf of the entire ECR group when necessary.
