European Left election candidates

The European United Left – Nordic Green Left (GUE) group has announced its lead candidates for the European elections.

The European Left currently has 52 MEPs in the European Parliament.

The Group has elected Violeta Tomi? and Nico Cue as the lead candidates for the 2019 elections. Violeta is a member of the Levica party in the Slovenian parliament and the spokeswoman on Palestine and LGBT rights. Nico is a trade unionist and the former secretary general of the Metalworkers’ Union of Belgium. Both candidates will prioritise the social question during the campaign, as this is “the key issue of our time”. The Left is prioritising peace and anti-militarism, an end to austerity economics leading to a redistribution of wealth. It will also engage with the youth movement against climate change.

Left Unity is active in movements and campaigns across the left, working to create an alternative to the main political parties.
