Brexit Party misses first deadline to form political group in European Parliament

Brexit Party misses first deadline to form political group in European Parliament:

Several Parliament officials said that Farage’s former “Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy” group had not been added to the official list. “Farage and Five Star doesn’t have a group,” said one official, referring to Italy’s Five Star movement which was also part of the EFDD.

Forming a group in the Parliament opens up funding, staff, and speaking time — and confers more influence in the legislature. If Farage doesn’t form a group, he will no longer sit at the front of the hemicycle, share a Secretary-General with other non-affiliated members and be granted significantly less speaking time than in the last Parliament.
