Elections 2017

The Green Party  are standing in 55 of the 75 North West Constituencies in the General election, i.e. nearly three quarters of available seats.  In some of the other (marginal) seats Greens are standing down specifically to assist candidates of other Parties, following discussions with those Parties, e,g, City of Chester and Cheadle.  Whilst slightly down on the 2015 election, this is a significantly higher number of seats than UKIP in the region.

List of General Election candidates are in the table below. 

In the recent County Council elections in Lancashire and Cumbria, Greens fielded a record number of candidates. Numbers were particularly up in Cumbria, with 56 candidates, 25 more than in 2013.  Numbers in Lancashire were also up, by 7 and Gina Dowding was re-elected to Lancashire County Council with a greatly increased majority (1085 votes).
