Hold European Parliamentary elections in UK if Brexit is delayed

0 have signed. Let’s get to 5,000!

If Theresa May requests a three month extension of Article 50 (or longer), then the European elections will take place while the UK is still an EU member.

There are many reasons why people voted to leave in 2016, but they did not include allowing the UK government to abolish democracy.

British citizens and EU27 citizens in the UK (who choose to vote in the UK) must have representation in the European Parliament through their MEPs.

Our representatives are elected and not appointed.

We therefore call on Theresa May and the Government to bring forward legislative amendment to Schedule 9 of the EU (Withdrawal) Act 2018, which lists the European Parliamentary Elections Act 2002 and the European Parliament (Representation) Act 2003 among the Acts to be wholly repealed.

This must be done so as to ensure that the European Parliamentary elections can take place in the UK on 23 May 2019.
