London MEP Syed Kamall, who leads the European Conservatives and Reformists Group in the  European Parliament has welcomed the Conservative Party's anticipated win in the General Election and said the  Conservatives now have a mandate to push for change in the EU ahead of a  promised referendum in 2017.

He said:

“This is an excellent result for the Conservative Party that has confounded all expectations.

“David Cameron campaigned on a platform of reform in the EU and he  clearly has a mandate to pursue this. The ECR Group will work closely  with him and his team as they seek not just a better deal for Britain  but a more flexible, open and eurorealist EU that will deliver a better  deal for all of its Members.”

“This election was also positive for the Ulster Unionist Party,  re-taking its place on the map of Northern Ireland and we send our  congratulations to them.

“This has been a good weekend for the ECR with our member parties in  the UK and Finland looking set to enter government and a likely strong  showing in Sunday’s Presidential election in Poland. Clearly the cause  of EU reform continues to gain ground right across the EU.”
