Anita Pollack

Anita J. Pollack (born 1946, Australia) was Labour MEP for London South West (European Parliament constituency) from 1989 to 1999.

She came to live in London in November 1969 and became a naturalised British citizen in 2005. She previously stood for Westminster in Woking (UK Parliament constituency). She first stood for London SW in 1984, and narrowly took the seat from the Conservatives in 1989. Her election represented one of the contradictions of European integration.

As a British resident and a citizen of a Commonwealth country, she qualified to vote and run for office in the UK (before her naturalisation in 2005). As an Australian citizen she required a visa from France to take up her seat at the European Parliament in Strasbourg. In 1999 she stood on the Labour list in South East England (European Parliament constituency), but was not elected.
