Casey to run in European Parliament elections

 

Peter Casey has confirmed he is to run in the European Parliament elections in the Midlands North West constituency.

Launching his campaign, the independent candidate said he will be “the voice for rural Ireland” at the heart of the EU.

Mr Casey, who polled second to incumbent Michael D Higgins in the recent Irish presidential elections with 342,727 first preference votes, will register his candidacy in Mayo this afternoon.
