Syed Kamall valde att leda Europeiska konservativa och reformistiska gruppen




Syed_Kamall-MEPLondons parlamentsledamot Syed Kamall (avbildad) was on 12 June elected by the ECR Group as its leader.  Speaking after his election, he said:  “I am proud to lead the ECR Group – one of the EU’s fastest growing political families. 

“I pay tribute to outgoing chairman Martin Callanan. Martin has been a strong supporter of the cause of European reform and eurorealism, and he his hard work is a major part of the reason why the ECR is now growing and attracting new member parties.

“The ECR Group has done well from these elections. When we were formed five years ago we were dismissed, but we have worked hard to gain a strong foothold here in Brussels and in Strasbourg. The agenda of EU reform is firmly established and we have delivered some significant successes in areas like the budget, fisheries and the flexibility within EU banking union. Now I want to build on those successes and see the ECR playing an active, pivotal and constructive role in the parliament to deliver our agenda of a more decentralized and flexible EU that focuses its efforts on economic reform, opening markets and providing opportunities for business and entrepreneurs.

“I look forward to working within our group and across the parliament to build a solid base to further reforms in the coming months and years ahead. We will work with all those people who believe change for the better is possible in the EU.”
