Green Party NI prioritises pro-Remain vote in North Down

Wednesday 13 November 2019

Clare Bailey has announced that the Green Party NI will not stand a candidate in North Down for the General Election.

The Green Party Leader NI said: “This election comes during extraordinary times and the priority must be to maximise the pro-Remain vote in North Down.

“Let’s remember that the majority of people across the constituency voted to Remain and they should have an MP that reflects a pro-European view.

“I want to see the new MP for North Down follow Lady Sylvia Hermon’s lead in defending our position in the European Union at a time when Brexit threatens our way of life.

“I’d also like to pay tribute to Lady Hermon for her courage and commitment to the people of Northern Ireland when Brexit plunged Westminster into chaos and political rhetoric became so toxic.” Clare concluded:

“The imperative is for us to Remain and work through the EU institutions to tackle climate breakdown, advance workers right and protect our peace process.”
