Sinn Féin MEPs back anti-austerity candidate for EU President
Martina Anderson MEP said today the four Sinn Féin MEPs will be supporting the GUE/NGL nominee, Pablo Iglesias for European Parliament President.
Martina Anderson said:
“The four Sinn Féin MEPs representing every county in Ireland will be supporting the GUE/NGL candidate for European Parliament President.
“Pablo Iglesias is a member of the Spanish ‘PODEMOS’ (‘we can’) Party which like Sinn Féin fought a successful election on a clear anti-austerity platform.
“We aim to challenge the cosy consensus in Europe which has promoted austerity legislating for cuts attacking the living standards of millions of people across Europe.
“Our Sinn Féin team will work with other like-minded MEPs to deliver economic growth and job creation based on social justice and equality for the people of Ireland.”
