This page last updated on 19 July 2020 have won an important concession for EU citizens

IN an announcement in the House of Lords, the UK Government has confirmed that EU citizens will be able to stand as candidates and vote in Local Elections, within England, in 2021, also EU citizens will also be able to vote in local elections. Not only that, but EU citizens will also be able to stand and vote in elections for Police and Crime Commissioners, within England and Wales, in 2021. In Scotland, EU citizens' right to vote for the Scottish Parliament and in local elections is protected because the franchise is a devolved power. However, in the rest of the UK, New Europeans had raised concerns that the Government might now remove the franchise from EU citizens post Brexit. said:- "Our concerns had been fuelled by the Government's pursuit of bi-lateral agreements on voting with some member states, like Poland. We will also never forget the disgraceful way the Government denied the vote to over 1.7 EU citizens in the European elections in 2019 and we continue to pursue our demand for a public inquiry. After 2021, the position is still unclear. The Government could remove the franchise from EU citizens not covered by bi-lateral agreements without even the need for a debate in Parliament. That is why we invite you to join New Europeans and support our campaigns to secure the franchise for EU citizens in perpetuity. The Government's confirmation that EU citizens will be able to stand and vote in local elections in 2021 is an important concession. The fact that we are constantly campaigning and drawing attention to the issue of #DeniedMyVote and the future voting rights of EU citizens in the UK is having a huge impact and we fight on. None of this would be possible without members support. If you have not signed the the petition and support for our campaign, please do son here and also please share the petition."
