‘Election sends powerful message to Britain and Brussels’ - Anderson
The people of the north have sent a powerful message to Britain and Brussels that they reject Brexit just as they did in June 2016, newly re-elected Sinn Féin MEP Martina Anderson has said.
Speaking after topping the poll in the EU Election, Martina Anderson commented:
“This has been an historic election.
“The people of the north have elected two remain MEPs and have sent a powerful message that people here reject Brexit just as they did in the 2016 referendum.
“I want to thank everyone who came out and voted in this election. You have made it absolutely clear that the DUP do not speak for the people of the north.
“That is the message I will be taking to Europe in the crucial weeks and months ahead.
“The Brexit process is still in chaos. But whatever happens next, the democratic wishes of the people of the north must be respected.
“As your MEP, I will continue to campaign tirelessly to ensure that the Good Friday Agreement is protected, there is no hardening of the border and people’s rights are upheld.”
