Green Party make it a Montgomeryshire election six-pack

29/02/2024 @ 11:15


The Green Party have entered the fray for the local UK Parliamentary seat, with Montgomery and Forden county councillor Jeremy Brignell-Thorp confirmed as their candidate for Montgomeryshire and Glyndwr.

A General Election is expected later this year, and this week’s confirmation from the Green Party means that six candidates to date have been announced.

The veteran environmental campaigner announced: “Just in case there is a General Election this year, I am pleased to say that I will be standing as the offical Green Party candidate in Montgomeryshire and Glyndwr.

“The Green Party is the only party taking the climate emergency seriously - and this is the defining issue of this century.

“The Green Party also stands for a fair and compassionate society, please contact me if you would like to learn more about the Green Party.”

The candidates so far (in no particular order):

Plaid Cymru: Elwyn Vaughan

Labour: Steve Witherden

Green Party: Jeremy Brignell-Thorp

Conservatives: Craig Williams

Liberal Democrats: Glyn Preston

Reform UK: Oliver Lewis
