Note on our election campaign plans in Scotland

Published on April 25, 2017

Statement from the European Movement in Scotland (EMiS) on their plans for the election.

European Movement in Scotland (EMiS) is not participating in supporting any candidate in this election. Other Remain groups may decide to do so and local individual campaigners may of course do as they see fit. Instead, EMiS is asking all parties in Scotland about their position on Scotland’s relationship with the EU in their General Election campaign. They are looking for all parties, including in their Manifesto, to speak up for Scotland’s best interests, which are clearly served, by the fullest possible relationship with the European Union.


Help us put Europe on the political agenda before the general election

    I have to admit I do not understand this “neutrality”. There are parties who support Scotland’s best interests, which in their opinion lie in a close relationship with the EU, and there are those who are not. So why not support the parties with a manifesto in line with European Movement’s mission? By not doing this, in my eyes this movement strengthens the parties in Scotland who promote Brexit, following the line of their UK mother parties. For this reason, I will support one of the pro-European parties in Europe, but not the “neutral” EMiS.
