2019 Election Results from Around the World

One of the best aspects of the Global Greens is that we not only learn and support one another – but we also get to share in our Global successes. We thought it might be useful to provide a quick overview of the election results that we know of from 2019 – let us know what we’re missing! We’ve listed them according to the election date.

Also, we're setting up a team to track election results. If you'd like to be a part of it please email amy at [email protected] with "Election Tracking" in the heading. 

Estonia. The Estonian Greens achieved 1.8% of the vote in the national elections in March 2019.
