MacManus Welcomes Recognition of Palestinian Statehood

Sinn Féin MEP for Midlands North-West, Chris MacManus, has welcomed the recognition of Palestinian Statehood.

MacManus, who is a Member of the European Parliament Delegation for Relations with Palestine, has said that the announcement must be followed up by the government utilising every tool at their disposal to hold Israel to account and to demand full adherence to international law.

MacManus said:

“I want to commend all of those who have campaigned for this over many decades. 

“The recognition of Palestinian Statehood by Ireland must be the first step in the government playing a leading international role in assisting the creation of an independent and sovereign Palestinian State.  

“The government must follow this announcement by utilising every tool at their disposal to hold Israel to account and to demand full adherence to international law. 

“This announcement also serves as an opportunity for Fine Gael MEP candidates to renounce their support for Ursula von der Leyen in her pursuit of a second term as president of the European Commission, given how her handling of the humanitarian crisis in Gaza has severely damaged the European Union’s credibility as a partner for peace.
