The Green party has confirmed the names of the six people hoping to become the party’s 2016 London Mayoral candidate.
The mayoral hopefuls will now take part in a series of hustings, the first of which will be held this Saturday, before members are balloted. The result of the vote is expected to be announced in the first week of September.
Caroline Allen, Co-Chair of London Green Party, said: “The breadth of experience, skills, and knowledge amongst our six candidates is a testament to just how far the Green Party has come in London and shows that we are going to be a force to be reckoned with come next May, no matter who is our candidate.
“It’s my pleasure to wish each of our candidates good luck in what I know will be high quality and close-fought contest.”
In addition to a Mayoral candidate, party members will select candidates for the London Assembly after current members Baroness Jenny Jones and Darren Johnson announced that they’re standing down after 16 years on the body.
