Sajjad Karim

Sajjad Karim has been nominated to the 2014 MEP Awards for his very proactive use of social media for informing the public of the work he and other MEPs are undertaking in the European Parliament. In addition, the British MEP is keen to break down the democratic deficit and sees Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and more as the best way to disperse information about what goes on in Brussels. He has grown his Twitter followers from 800 to almost 3000 in less than two years; has over 1200 likes on his Facebook fan page, has over 100 videos on his YouTube page, with the ECR deputy engaging regularly with citizens across these networks.
