The South East Green Party welcomes to news that EU elections will be held on May 23rd and will use these democratic and proportional elections to stand up for free movement, climate action and for the rights of all Europeans.
Alexandra Phillips, a Green Councillor from Brighton & Hove has been selected as the lead candidate for the South East Greens European Parliamentary candidate list.
Keith Taylor has been the party’s MEP since 2010 for the South East. He is standing down this year and is proud to hand over to Alex Phillips, a Green Councillor for Brighton & Hove City Council and the other candidates including Elise Benjamin, former Oxford City Councillor and Vix Lowthion, Green party Spokesperson for Education.
Alex Phillips said on being selected,
Greens are clear - our priorities are the really big issues: equality for all, climate change and building a Europe that puts us, the people, first. Greens have always fought for real, positive change - and that's what electing Green MEPs like me will achieve. When you vote Green on May 23rd you know you’ll be electing someone to fight your corner, and stand up for what really matters.
