Change starts here in European elections – Senator Paul Gavan

Sinn Féin candidate for Ireland South for the European elections Senator Paul Gavan has today submitted his nomination papers.

Paul Gavan said:

“Today I was delighted to submit my nomination papers, to officially begin my campaign for the European election.

“I know that people across Ireland South need change. Change starts here with the European and local elections taking place on 7th June.

“These elections are taking place at a time when Ireland is facing many challenges – a worsening housing crisis, a health service under enormous pressure and families pushed to the brink by the cost of living crisis. Voting for Sinn Féin in this election is the first step to getting this disastrous government out of office.

“This is an opportunity to create meaningful change in Ireland and Europe to make real improvements in the everyday lives of workers, families and communities.

“This government has shown itself to be out of touch with the challenges ordinary people face day in, day out. There is a lack of energy, ideas and vision from the coalition and we’re getting more of the same from Simon Harris. They are recycling the same failed policies over and over while being too deferential to the European Union.

“We have a government that is out of touch, that doesn’t understand the challenges we are facing, doesn’t have the ideas or the capacity to fix them and is too deferential to the European Union. We need MEPs who will stand up for Ireland and champion the interests of workers and families.

“I am proud to be running alongside Kathleen Funchion in Ireland South, we will work together with a strong team of Sinn Féin MEPs to stand up for you and your family on the issues that matter.

“This election is an opportunity to deliver the change that is needed. By voting for Sinn Féin, you are voting for hard working MEPs committed to delivering change.”
