London Conservatives have chosen the Party’s candidates for the European Elections in 2014.
After a first round of selection, where would-be candidates gave hustings-style speeches and took questions from the chairs of London Conservative Associations, the second round consisted of a postal ballot open to all party members registered in London Associations.
The three sitting Conservative MEPs were returned as candidates along with five new candidates. In the order reported, these are (with web links where I have them):
- Syed Kamall
- Dr Charles Tannock
- Marina Yannakoudakis
- Caroline Attfield
- Dr Lynne Hack
- Sheila Lawlor
- Glyn Chambers
- Annesley Abercorn
Congratulations to all that have made the final list.
A little local HSPCA connection comes via Annersley Abercorn, who is currently a student within the Association, as he is at UCL and a member of the Conservative group there, making him an affiliate member of HSPCA!
