Former Chairman of the East Ham Conservative Association selected as MEP Candidate

London MEP Candidate Attic Rahman

Former Chairman of the East Ham Conservative Association, Attic Rahman has been
selected as a MEP candidate for the London Region in the forthcoming European
Elections. Attic is a qualified solicitor, a charity volunteer and a party activist with a wealth of
political experience. He has lived in East Ham for the past 20 years.

Attic said “I am extremely honoured to have been selected as a candidate to represent our
great nation. My basic proposition (and the reason I put myself forward) is that whilst we are
in the European Union we have a legal duty to be properly represented. The Conservative
Party’s 2017 Manifesto made a commitment to respect the outcome of the referendum and
to leave the EU but because Parliament has not backed a Brexit deal yet, we haven’t been
able to leave as planned. I will work with UK MEP’s to stand against any further financial
commitments beyond our current obligations. I want to ensure the UK withdraws from the EU
and all its political institutions while continuing with a strong trading relationship with Europe.
That’s why I will also be working to strengthen bilateral agreements to ensure they can take
effect immediately on leaving the EU. I hope you will all join me.”

Attic went on to say, any attempts to block or overturn the will of the majority by calls for a
second referendum or otherwise, is unconscionable, undemocratic and a betrayal of the
electorates trust.

In the past, Attic has stood for election as a Newham Council candidate. He is also an
approved Parliamentary candidate for the Conservative party, a London East Area officer
and, an Executive member of the Conservative Muslim Forum.
