Greens ready to stand for election in Berwick

The Green Party has announced its intention to contest the general election in the Berwick constituency.

The Greens plan to put forward a candidate to stand in May after the forming of local branch of the national party.

A statement read:

“The Green Party are delighted to announce the formation of a local branch of the national party, to represent the interests of the Berwick-upon-Tweed constituency and to give voters in north Northumberland a wider range of choice than ever before at the forthcoming general election.”

The party has not had been on a general election ballot paper for the Berwick constituency since 1987 when Nigel David Pamphilion received 379 votes.

A group of people from the north Northumberland area met in Alnwick before Christmas and agreed to form a local branch of the national party, with the urgent aim to ensure that there is a locally-based Green Party candidate on the ballot paper in May.

The party’s next meeting is in Berwick on Saturday.
