Most of the member parties of NGLA have not joined the Party of the European Left (the Finnish Left Alliance and the Danish Red-Green Alliance being a recent exception), but NGLA participates in EL events as an observer.

In the European Parliament, the MEP of the Swedish Left Party, the Danish Red-Green Alliance and the Finnish Left Alliance are part of the European United Left–Nordic Green Left parliamentary group, whilst the Danish Socialist People's Party MEP is a member of the Greens-EFA group. The Irish Sinn Féin, the Basque EH Bildu, the Dutch Party for the Animals and the German Party Human Environment Animal Welfare have also joined the NGL.
