Nigel Farage the UKIP leader and the current President of the Group said,
“I am delighted to announce the formation of this group. It is a cohesive and broad based Group that will be able to build on the effectiveness of the Independence/Democracy Group from the last Parliament.
It will be able to provide real opposition to the centralising consensus of the other groups. Something that this Parliament, and the free peoples of Europe have been crying out for”.
The name of the new Group and its program will be presented at the launch.
Press are, of course welcome to come and ask questions of the new Group members who will be present.
