Harpenden Greens step aside to secure Remain vote in General Election


The Green Party will not field a candidate in the constituency of Hitchin & Harpenden in the upcoming General Election as part of a series of electoral arrangements with the Liberal Democrats and Plaid Cymru. 
Members of the Green Party living in the area have democratically collectively chosen to step aside to ensure that the Remain vote on 12 December is unified and that a Tory candidate is not successful in the constituency.


Tim Lee (candidate for North East Herts) and Victoria Snelling (candidate for Stevenage), the co-leads of North Herts Green Party said, "Greens are willing to work with other parties for the common good. Brexit would be deeply damaging so we are using the tools we have in seeking to protect the citizens of the UK. We believe this is the right thing to do for the people of Hitchin & Harpenden. Local Green members are going to be campaigning in Bury St Edmunds, a seat in the region where Lib Dems have stood aside for the Green candidate, Helen Geake."


Electoral arrangements, coordinated by the Unite To Remain group, have been made in 60 constituencies across England and Wales.
