The European Parliament’s president has dismissed British Prime Minister Theresa May’s claim that the EU is seeking to intervene in Britain’s June election. reports citing to PressTV Antonio Tajani said on Thursday that the allegation by May that the European body is trying to influence the outcome of the vote is not true. He stressed that no one is trying to sway the result of the election.

"No one is trying to influence the outcome the election campaign in the United Kingdom,” Tajani said. ”It is better to have an interlocutor who is not constantly looking for votes because they have had the election, in order to work towards a good solution.”

"If you have an election campaign, the rhetoric gets sharper and more robust. I don't think there is any question of influencing the campaign,” he added.

Tajani’s denial came after a spokesman for European Commission president Jean-Claude Juncker dismissed the allegation by saying that the EU had “too much to do” to interfere in the vote.
