The We Demand a Referendum Now Party today announces its FULL candidate list for the upcoming European Union elections.
The 7 name list is released ahead of the vote, which is to be held on Thursday May 22nd 2014.
Heading the list in the West Midlands is incumbent MEP Nikki Sinclaire. Nikki has represented the West Midlands region in the European Parliament since 2009 and has been independently ranked by website www.MEPRanking.eu as the hardest working MEP in the West Midlands region.
Next on the list is Mohammed Adris MBE, commonly known as Andy. As a local community champion, Andy received an MBE for his tireless work as a Special Constable police officer here in the region.
Andy said, “I’m thrilled to be standing alongside the regions hardest working MEP to fight for an EU referendum. I’m a great admirer of Nikki’s international human rights work, particularly on Kashmir”
Third on the list is Cllr Linda Brown, who was elected as an Independent Councillor in Solihull in 2012.
Cllr Brown comments: “For too long the people have been denied their say on EU membership. If we are a democracy, then the people should be given their say and then the government must abide by the result. Are we to stop in or come out? Let the People Decide!''
Policy: The We Demand a Referendum Now Party are calling for an In or Out vote on EU membership on or before the General Election in 2015.
Nikki Sinclaire added,“Over the past five years I have proven to be hard-working, determined and my referendum petition campaign has changed the course of the debate on EU membership, unlike the Prime Minister who is still letting the British people down by avoiding the best option for our country. His decision to wait until after the next general election to offer a weak tinkering of our EU membership but only if he is re-elected is unacceptable. If re-elected I pledge to keep up the pressure on the Government to ensure that the people get their say ASAP''
''The West Midlands needs strong representation, and the We Demand a Referendum Now Party and I provide that”.
The order and the other candidates standing on the West Midlands list are:
Nikki Sinclaire MEP
Andy Adris MBE
Cllr Linda Brown
“It is fantastic that we have such a strong list of candidates here in the West Midlands from all walks of life, all united by one issue – we all believe in a EU referendum now”.
