Carthy to formally submit nomination papers in Castlebar tomorrow
Sitting Sinn Féin MEP Matt Carthy will submit his nomination papers to the returning officer at 10am tomorrow morning (Saturday April 12th) at Castlebar Courthouse in Co. Mayo to formally begin his campaign for the 2019 EU Elections taking place on Friday May 24th.
Speaking ahead of delivering his nomination papers, Matt Carthy, said:
“For the past five years I have worked hard on behalf of the Irish people as part of an effective all-Ireland team of Sinn Féin MEPs. We have delivered where and when it counted.
“I am looking forward to contesting this election on my record of work and on the Sinn Féin policy platform that seeks to deliver a better, fairer, united Ireland in a radically reformed EU.
“A vote for me in this election will be a vote for jobs, investment & services across the regions; for a fair deal for working families and supports for those in mortgage distress. It will be a vote for a united Ireland and a vote against any hardening of the border in our country.
“Those who vote for me will be assured of representation that will resist additional stealth charges, including climate tax hikes, being imposed on Irish families. They will be guaranteed an MEP to will stand up to the banks and vultures and who will oppose the further of transfer of powers to Brussels, dangerous EU trade deals and further moves towards the creation of an EU army.
“Put simply, a vote for me will be a vote for someone who will fight for Ireland and the Irish people”. ENDS
