A total of 41 lists in Germany have been approved for the European parliamentary elections, according to public broadcaster ARD. They include, among others, a pro-spiritual and a pro-love party.

German voters will be able to choose from 41 parties in the upcoming EU elections on May 23, according to a report by the public broadcaster ARD on Saturday.

The lists are a notable jump compared to the last European elections in 2014, when only 25 parties from Germany were in the race.

All six parties present in the Bundestag are set to take part in this month’s contest, including Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Union, its sister party, the Christian Social Union, and the center-left Social Democratic Party from the ruling coalition,

and the Left party, the Greens and the far-right Alternative for Germany from the opposition.
