HistoryEdit

NEG was formed in 2013 by former members of Galician Left Unity (UEG) and the entire membership of New Socialist Left (NES). Both groups had been part of Anova-Nationalist Brotherhood since its foundation.[1] This organization, formed through the merger of the two small parties, was also joined by about twenty ex-members of the Galician Socialist Party (PSdeG).

Currently the party is in a relationship of ongoing collaboration with organizations like Open Left (Izab), Convergence for Extremadura (CEX), Ezker Batua-Berdeak (EB-B), Compromís, Plural Space and Socialist Left Initiative (ISI) and is part of the left-wing coalition La Izquierda,[2] that advocates the creation, for the future elections, of a left front that could break the two-party system in Spain.

Óscar Álvarez Lomba and Lois Pérez Leira are the two spokespersons of the party.
