Clare Bailey calls for meeting on pro remain agreed candidates

Wednesday 04 September 2019

Green Party NI Leader Clare Bailey has written to the leaders of Northern Ireland’s pro remain parties to initiate discussion around agreed candidates for the forthcoming General Election.  

The letters went to the leaders of the SDLP, Sinn Fein and Alliance Party today against the backdrop of speculation that an election will take place mid October.             

Clare Bailey MLA said:

“The people of Northern Ireland voted to remain and it’s vital that our MPs reflect that.     

“These are extraordinary and precarious times as we face into a no deal Brexit and continuing chaos at Westminster.

“That’s why I have written to local party leaders to explore all possible options around the expected General Election.”

Clare concluded:

“In the face of a snap General Election, a no deal Brexit and chaos at Westminster, we must put the interests of the people ahead of those of any single party or prospective candidate.”
