EFD Group statement
• A New EFD Group has been formed in the European Parliament, currently with 7 national delegations and 48 members.
Group President Nigel Farage said:
“I am very proud to have formed this Group with other MEPs and we undertake to be the peoples’ voice.
“We will be at the forefront working for the restoration of freedom, national democracy and prosperity across Europe.
“I am excited about working together with other delegations to be effective in exerting as much change as possible in Brussels while labouring at home to alert people to the harm that EU regulation does to the lives of ordinary people. Expect us to fight the good fight to take back control of our countries' destinies.
