Camden Green Party offers council voters a full choice

The Camden Green Party announced today that for the third successive council election it is standing a "full slate" of 54 candidates.

Cllr Maya de Souza, who is seeking re-election in Highgate ward, said:

"I am delighted by the quality team that we have assembled, reflecting the growing numbers and strength of the Camden Green Party."

"Green parties in Lewisham, Brighton, Norwich and many other places have seen numbers of councillors grow quickly after they made the initial election breakthrough, and we're working very hard to see the same effect in Camden.''

"Camden Green Party wants to deliver 20mph zones in most roads in the borough, wants to continue leading the fight to protect NHS services and fight the Tory/Labour push for privatisation, and to deliver insulation for every home that needs it."

Natalie Bennett, the Green Party parliamentary candidate for Holborn and St Pancras, who is also standing for council in St Pancras and Somers Town, where she lives, said: "It is pleasing that 24 of our 54 candidates are female - not quite gender parity, but getting close."

The party currently has three councillors on the council.
