Greens stand aside in Richmond Park and Twickenham

Standing up for a progressive alliance

Members of Richmond & Twickenham Green Party and Kingston Green Party voted at a meeting last night that their candidates for Richmond Park (Andree Frieze) and for Twickenham (Caroline Wren) will stand aside in the forthcoming general election. We are discussing a progressive alliance with other parties in both constituencies.

Working towards a better democracy

The Green Party decided not to field a candidate in the Richmond Park by-election last year. We chose to use the by-election as an opportunity to forge a new kind of politics- a progressive alliance - to work towards a better democracy.

Country before party

Richard Bennett, Richmond and Twickenham Green Party Joint Coordinator, said: "We are proud to be at the vanguard of a growing movement to create a new kind of politics. Progressive parties must work together to put country before party."
