UDB win seat in French Parliament

Great news! Paul Molac of the Union Democratique Bretonne (UDB) has been elected to the French Parliament. He is the first Breton autonomist to be elected to the Parliament and will represent the Ploermael / Kistreberzh / Ar Roc’h Bernez constituency in Morbihan.

Mr Molac stood on a joint UDB-Greens-Left ticket and is a well-known campaigner for the Breton language. He is the chair of the Breton bilingual schools organisation Div Yezh and former Chair of the Breton Cultural Council.

Well done Paul. A fantastic first for the UDB.

The UDB, MK, Plaid Cymru and SNP are all constituent parties of the European Free Alliance.
