Yorkshire First has formally joined the European Free Alliance (EFA), which advocates devolution and self-determination for members’ countries or regions.
Yorkshire First will initially join the EFA with ‘observer’ status.
Richard Carter, Yorkshire First Leader, said: “Yorkshire First is now part of a wider political movement of established parties where we share similar goals. More say for the regions is not just limited to the UK. We will work to influence better governance where power is at the lowest feasible level. Local and regional first – national and European where beneficial.”
