Green Party will not stand in Southend West by-election

18 October 2021

The Green Party has announced it will not be standing a candidate in the forthcoming by-election in Southend West, following the death of Sir David Amess last Friday. [1]

Greens have decided not to stand a candidate out of respect, and it follows a similar decision taken in 2016 following the death of Jo Cox MP.

As a further mark of respect, local Green Party members in Southend have agreed to suspend all campaigning in the town for two weeks.

ENDS
