UK participation in EU elections poses potential legal challenges – McGuinness

April 18, 2019

The UK participation in next month’s EU elections could pave the way for potential legal challenges in Ireland because of the two extra MEP seats we’ve been given.

That’s according to the Fine Gael MEP Mairead McGuinness.

A number of countries including Ireland, were given extra MEP seats on the assumption the British were leaving and a proportion of their seats were then redistributed to other member states.

However, the last two winning MEP candidates will have to put their European ambitions on hold If the UK participate in the European elections.

Mairead McGuinness says that could lead to potential legal challenges.
