posted in: News & Views | 0

The Communist Party has announced our first Westminster parliamentary candidates for the General Election on 4 July 2024.

The Party’s Political Committee met last night (Thursday 23 May) and endorsed plans from local CP organisations to fight seats in England, Scotland and Wales, with more candidates to be announced next week.
Candidates so far include former housing and local government worker Lorraine Douglas, who will be challenging ex-Prime Minister Liz Truss in South West Norfolk, and trade union organiser Darren Turner, also an activist in the Toothless in Suffolk campaign. He will be flying the red flag in Bury St Edmunds & Stowmarket.

The full list of candidates will be confirmed in early June.

‘The Communist Party will be contesting its highest number of Westminster seats for 40 years’, the Party’s General Secretary Robert Griffiths told the meeting of the Political Committee, ‘and our battle-cry will be “Tories out – unite for workers’ rights, public ownership and peace!””

Take this chance to join the fight to kick out the Tories and to build the Communist Party and the class struggle.
