WASHINGTON, D.C. -- The Green Party of the United

Federal Election Commission (FEC) on the party's
request for recognition as a national party with
national committee status. FEC staff have
recommended a favorable response to the

"The Green Party has met all conditions required
of previously recognized national committees and
is confident of a positive response," said Green
Party Media Coordinator Scott McLarty, who will
be at the hearing to meet press and to distribute
the party's press release on the decision.

The Green Party of the United States is the
national political organization of the Greens, in
which 33 states are represented, with other

It organized the Green National Convention in
Denver in June, 2000, at which Ralph Nader was
nominated to run for President, and is recognized
among Green Parties around the world.

Media inquiries about national policies and
activities of the Green Party should be directed
