Sinn Féin to meet with Basque delegation
Sinn Féin will be among a number of political parties meeting with a 15 member Basque Parliamentary delegation on Monday 4th February, who are visiting the Assembly at the invitation of the speaker.
The Basque delegation includes Kattallin de Madariaga MP, a member of the 'pro independence left parliamentarian group' formed by EHAK (the Communist Party of the Basque Lands) party members. The Spanish administration has begun the process of banning both EHAK and ANV (Basque Nationalist Action), which would also bar them from running candidates in the Spanish general election scheduled for March 9.
The Sinn Féin delegation will include Assembly members Jennifer McCann, Martina Anderson, John O'Dowd and Francie Brolly.
The Basque delegation will also meet with the DUP, UUP, Alliance Party and SDLP on Monday and the First and deputy First Ministers on Tuesday February 5.
Sinn Féin will hold a joint press conference with Kattallin de Madariaga MP on Monday, February 4th at Stormont.
