ballot-boxThe Green Party has agreed to step aside for the Liberal Democrats in the Chelmsford constituency, it was announced today.

As part of Unite to Remain, the Liberal Democrats have made an arrangement with The Green Party and Plaid Cymru to step aside for pro-Remain candidates in 60 seats across England and Wales.

Across the country the Liberal Democrats will stand aside in 13 constituencies so that there is a clear pro-Remain candidate. In turn, in 43 constituencies other parties will stand aside for a Liberal Democrat candidate.

Welcoming today's announcement, Liberal Democrat candidate for Chelmsford, Marie Goldman said:

"This is an exciting day for all those in Chelmsford who are committed to stopping Brexit.

"I am thankful to the local Green Party for helping us reach this historic agreement.

"It is clear that the Liberal Democrats are the strongest party of Remain in Chelmsford, as well as hundreds of other seats across the country.

"A vote for the Liberal Democrats is a vote to stop Brexit, invest the £50bn Remain bonus in our public services, tackle climate change, and build a brighter future."
