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
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.
