Comments Currently in Slovenia we have formed the Society of Slovenian Pirates (Društvo piratov Slovenije), this is only temporary as establishing a political party is very costly and we needed a legal entity. When the Pirate party of Slovenia (Piratska stranka Slovenije) is officially founded we will request that membership in PPI is transferred to that entity.

Comments PPAk/YPNZ is a group of PPNZ members and supporters which functions as both a regional chapter of PPNZ in Auckland (PPAk) and a youth wing (YPNZ) until they can be set up separately.

I can also add that PPNZ has already contested one parliamentary by-election as an unregistered party, and plans to contest the November 2011 parliamentary general election as a registered, or failing that as an unregistered party.

Pirate Party of Catalonia

Founding date: officially a political party since 4 of October 2010
Members Few more than 400 affiliates
Statutes Pirates de Catalunya ESTATUTOS (PDF, Cat.) (english translation)
Background We are the Catalan part of the Spanish Pirate Party. We found that their way of working was not good and making impossible for us to present for the autonomic elections last November. We met and decided to create our Pirate party. Catalonia has a lot of autonomic Parties, so it’s not something strange. Some members are in both Pirate Parties (Spanish and Catalan), between them are Kenneth Peiruza (The guy who signed for the Spanish Party to join the PPI last year) and myself, Xavi Vila, Core Team Member of the PPI, for example. We have contact with some Catalans that support the Pirate movement that are around the world (UK, USA, France, …)
Elections In the autonomic elections we obtained 6500 votes (0,21%). We are working to present in some local parts next May, in the local elections.
Comments We have contacts with some Pirates when travel here, for example Amelia.
