United Left established within the ULA… March 3, 2013Posted by WorldbyStorm in Irish Politics, The Left.
Thanks to the person who sent this:
“With the new opinion poll there was a timely agreement yesterday in Dublin by the supporters of Joan Collins TD (including the Dublin 12 ULA Branch), Clare Daly TD, Cllr. Declan Bree (Sligo) and most of the active ULA nonaligned to form a new platform or organisation within the ULA, ‘United Left’.
The main focus of United Left will be the need for a new, broad based non sectarian party to represent and organise working people and to build the United Left and the wider alliance as a preparation for such a party. United Left bases itself on the founding statement of the ULA.
It also aims to develop a strategy to build further by involving other left organisations and groups either as part of the United Left or the wider alliance.
United Left will register as a ‘party’ for electoral purposes.
It is planned to have a public launch of United Left and a series of local public meetings in the near future.”
[interesting to work through the implications, particularly the registration of UL as a party - wbs]
