The London Assembly selection contest

The London Assembly consists of 25 members elected every four years. 14 are elected from large constituencies in a first-past-the-post system. The other 11, called London-wide members, are elected under the List system on a proportional vote. The Green Party currently have two Londonwide members. The next London Assembly elections are in May 2008. We in the London Green Party have now the started the selection for our list. Voting is open to all London Green Party members. There are 23 candidates (including myself) for the eleven places on the list.

This is the reason why I have not posted in several days. Selection statements had to be produced, on-line hustings, formal hustings and a social hustings as well as producing a A3 leaflet.

A round of applause please for all those who organised and helped with the mailouts and hustings.
And spare a thought for the rather complicated job the returning officer has yet to start.
Let's hope he a has a full mailbag.
