Party News from the March 2014 issue of the Socialist Standard
The Socialist Party is planning to contest Wales and the South East Region of England in May’s elections to the European Parliament.
The South East Region is the biggest in the country. It covers the counties of Oxford, Buckinghamshire, Berkshire, Hampshire, the Isle of White, Surrey, Sussex and Kent and so big urban centres such as Southampton, Reading, Brighton and Oxford. There are some 6 million electors (more than in many EU Member States) and 10 MEPs (among the current ones the notorious Nigel Farage).
If we contest Wales that will entitle us to a Party Election Broadcast in Wales, the first time in our history that we will have had one.
The election is by proportional representation of party lists. We will be presenting a full list of 10 in the South East and 4 in Wales.
Election day is Thursday 22 May, so most of the campaigning will be from the end of April on. Any offers of help to distribute leaflets, write to the press, phone in to radio stations and the like, please contact election committee, by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to: The Socialist Party, 52 Clapham High Street, London SW4 7UN
