Wales Lays Claim To Gibraltar For European Elections

Following offers from MEPs in the West Midlands, the South West, and Northern Ireland to partner with Gibraltar for the purposes of the European Paliamentary Elections, Wales has come forward to offer its services.

According to the Rock's Iberia News service, Tory European Parliamentary leader, Jonathan Evans has been seeking support from the country's other political parties for a bid to have Gibraltar included in a Welsh region for the 2004 elections.

'Like Gibraltar, we've got different constitutional arrangements from England in Wales - so that ought to make the people of Gibraltar feel more assured that their voice will be heard,' he argued this week.

According to Iberia News, the European Representation Bill received its second reading on Tuesday. However, no indication was given during the three hour debate which followed as to which of the potential regions of the United Kingdom will be selected by the electoral commission to partner with Gibraltar.
