Despite the fact that most of the party’s 18 lawmakers are under criminal investigations, the Greek Supreme Court ruled to allow the Golden Dawn to take part in the EU elections.

Leader of the Golden Dawn Nikolaos Mihaloliakos is currently in jail after he was arrested last year for participating in a “criminal organization.”

The party has a strong anti-immigration policy and champions slogans such as “Clean up the stench,”and “Greece for the Greeks.”

Golden Dawn began as a fringe party in 1985 and rose to popularity during the crisis in Greece, winning 18 seats in the Hellenic Parliament in 2012.
