Libertas sent back to square one by Estonian MP…

Slightly embarrassing news for Libertas founder Declan Ganley yesterday… It looks like he didn’t quite have the backing he thought he had from the Latvian Estonian MP Igor Grazin to get him recognition as a political party from the European Union. It’s long been an ambition of Mr Ganley’s to transition Libertas from campaign group to pan European political party. They need seven national or European representatives to reach that status. Looks like the search for a seventh is back on.
