At a meeting last night, members of Canterbury District Green Party decided that they would not stand a candidate in a general election in the current political circumstances.
The party will not be entering into any kind of deal, pact or alliance with any other party, and does not endorse any other party.
Henry Stanton, Green Party spokesperson, said, "The Green Party - unlike other political parties - places local democracy and local parties at the heart of its operations. In this instance, members voted not to stand a general election candidate. The local party will instead be focussing efforts on campaigning to save the Wincheap wet woodland and water meadows, improve public transport and clean up Canterbury and Whitstable’s dirty air.”
Elsewhere, the Green Party is standing in the vast majority of seats for the General Election, and we encourage those who can to vote Green to put the climate crisis front and centre of this election.
