Candidates for EU elections announced


MEP candidates announced for the European Parliament elections on 23 May

The Liberal Democrats will fight these elections as an unapologetically pro-European Party campaigning hard for People's Vote with an option to remain in the the EU.

We are determined to give a voice to the millions of people who demand better than Brexit Britain.

We’ve announced a strong, diverse mix of candidates, from those who’ve joined the Liberal Democrats recently to those with long experience of the European Parliament.

We will fight these elections on a clear message: a Liberal Democrat vote is a vote to stop Brexit.

Across the country, the strength of our membership of 100,000 is being deployed to prepare for both the European elections on 23 May and for council elections on 2 May.

From local communities to the EU institutions, Liberal Democrats are determined to give a voice to the millions of people who demand better than Brexit Britain.

We have an excellent team of 10 candidates standing in the South East Region constituency for the European Union Parliament, led by Catherine Bearder MEP.  

Liberal Democrats across Oxfordshire will be doing all we can to get as many of our candidates elected as we can.

Lead MEP candidate for the South East region, Catherine Bearder MEP, said:

“Today we’ve announced a strong, diverse mix of candidates ready to positively represent the South East region in the European Union.

We will fight these elections on a clear message: a Liberal Democrat vote is a vote to stop Brexit.”

Antony Hook, Faversham's elected representative on Kent County Council said:

“Liberal Democrats are determined to give a voice to the millions of people who demand better than Brexit Britain.

With 16 years’ service as a barrister including with international experience, I believe I am well placed to skilfully represent South East England in Brussels at this critical moment for our country.”

Judith Bunting, activist and TV producer from the West Berkshire area, commented:

“If elected, I will work in Europe to reduce Carbon emissions, combat climate change and tackle the cross border crime that plagues our communities. I am committed to stopping Brexit. The Liberal Democrats are the only true party of remain. “

Martin Tod, Hampshire County Councillor and Winchester City Councillor, said today:

“I am sick of seeing footage of Nigel Farage and Dan Hannan spout nonsense in the European Parliament as they betray our national interest. As a Liberal Democrat MEP, I will go back at them, hard.

Britain should be leading in Europe, not leaving.”
