Chelmsford Green Party candidate steps aside to secure Remain vote 

The Green Party will not field a candidate in Chelmsford in the upcoming General Election as part of a series of electoral arrangements with the Liberal Democrats and Plaid Cymru. 

Ben Harvey is stepping aside to ensure that the Remain vote on 12 December is unified and that a Tory candidate is not successful in the Chelmsford constituency.

Ben Harvey said: “Brexit would be deeply damaging for Chelmsford. The Green Party has

shown maturity by working with other parties for the common good. This is the right thing to do for local people in my city.”

Ben continued: ” I would encourage Chelmsford Green Party members and supporters to visit other local constituencies to support Green Party candidates there.
