London (EuroEFE).- The leader of the British Liberal Democratic Party, Ed Davey, assured on Tuesday that his party has “the best plan” to strengthen the relationship between the United Kingdom and the European Union (EU) after the Brexit, if it wins the general election scheduled for 2024.
Davey said in a speech at the annual conference in Bournemouth (southern England) that Its strategy is “more ambitious” than the Labor Party, whose leader, Keir Starmer, also promises a rapprochement with the community bloc. if he becomes prime minister.
Although the Liberal Democratic Party continues to be the most openly pro-European party in Parliament in London, facing the next election, where it wants to seat the conservatives, Its leader warned that they would not defend returning to the EU in the short term.

“We are the only ones who have drawn up a detailed plan to break down trade barriers, repair our broken relationship with Europe and get a better deal for the UK,” he said, to applause from members. .
The leader of Britain’s third national party, which has 15 seats in the House of Commons (below), stated that the purpose of the next election is to take the maximum number of seats traditionally in the hands of “Tories”, who seem to be declining. after thirteen years of government.
After a period of crisis as a result of their government agreement with the Conservatives in 2010, the Liberal Democrats are now seeking to increase their presence in the Commons, where they are the fourth political force behind the Scottish independent parties in SNP, with 44 deputies..
Davey now recalled the successes of recent months, when the centrist party gained more seats from the ruling party in various by-elections.
