Election Review: Lo achieves best ever European election result
Running on a pro-European agenda — with community relations and environmental issues featuring highly on her radar — voters identified with Anna’s vision of how Northern Ireland could benefit from Europe.
She said: “I aimed high to achieve the best possible result for the party and am delighted to have achieved this.
“The campaign took me to all corners of Northern Ireland and let me meet some really interesting people — people who would only benefit further from at least one pro-European MEP. Sadly the same three MEPs will return to Europe, but not without knowing the pro-Europe vote has risen.
“I also want to thank all the volunteers who canvassed with me and for me — you helped achieve this fantastic result.
“Alliance has proven it can deliver change both in Northern Ireland, through our MLA and Council teams, and at Westminster, through Naomi Long MP. We are on the move in Europe and I hope to see this vote continue to rise until Alliance is representing everyone at a European level.”
