In June 1998, representatives from a number of left socialist, communist, and red-green parties in the European Union met in Berlin on the eve of the 1999 elections to the European Parliament to think about new forms and ways of cooperation.

Many parties of the transforming European Left, after a phase of difficult political reorientation as a result of the upheavals of 1989/1990, had reached the conclusion that it was high time to build up a more concrete collaboration, to convey a common profile of the European Left.

As a result of this meeting, thirteen European left-wing parties gathered in Paris in January 1999 and for the first time elaborated and passed a common request concerning the European elections, addressing all people living in the EU. In it the participating left parties formulated common aims and key ideas for a social, ecological, democratic, peaceful, and solidarity-based Europe as well as an outline of common goals for their cooperation within the EU. Based on the elections in June 1999, the Confederated Group of the United European Left/Nordic Green Left (Gauche Unifiée Européenne/Nordic Green Left, abbr. GUE/NGL) was formed in the European Parliament.
