Sajjad and his Conservative European Parliamentary colleagues yesterday met Prime Minister Theresa May at 10 Downing Street for an hour long meeting on the future direction of UK policy in Europe.
Sajjad was very close to former PM David Cameron and as a long-standing MEP is seen as a front runner in the European UK team in Brussels. Having served for 12 years on the European Parliament front bench, currently as legal affairs spokesman and having been the Conservative Presidential Candidate in parliament his responsibilities are now to work through the current exit of the UK from the E you. He stated after the meeting:
"Exiting from the EU is a very complex operation and our Conservative MEP front bench collectively have all the required experience and skills that can deliver much for the PM and London in this process.
"For my part after hearing from the Prime Minister I have made it clear that I will continue to act in the best interest of the UK and conduct a constructive contribution. Based upon the Prime Minister seeking such a contribution in a direct way with her new Premiership and office I will do all I can in any way that furthers the UK national interest."
