The National Health Action Party will be fielding candidates in the London region of the European Elections on May 22nd.
A big vote for the NHA party will send a strong message to politicians across the political spectrum that the public will not stand for the demolition and privatisation of our NHS.
The other main plank of the campaign is making it a top priority to exempt the NHS from the secretive TTIP trade agreement being negotiated between the EU and the US. This deal would open up the NHS to American private health companies and make privatisation permanent. Any future government would not be able to get out of contracts with private companies even if it wanted to.
Dr Louise Irvine, chair of the Save Lewisham Campaign, will be the lead candidate on the NHA Party’s list. The theatre and TV star Rufus Hound, a passionate NHS supporter, will also be running. The full list of 8 candidates will be announced shortly.
In the Euro Elections, you vote for a party not an individual. Voting is via proportional representation with seats allocated according to the number of votes received by each party. The more votes, the more people on the party list will be elected. It’s estimated that around 200,000 votes are needed in the London region to get one MEP elected.
