Left’s candidates are ready for election

Issue No. 2192

Two new candidates have joined the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition (TUSC) to stand in the upcoming general election.

Darren Ireland, secretary for the RMT union’s North Wales and North West regional council, will be standing in Liverpool Walton.

The seat is held by Labour but the current MP Peter Kilfoyle is retiring.

In Wellingborough and Rushden, Paul Crofts, an

independent socialist councillor, will be standing for TUSC.

The current Tory MP has a small majority of just over 500.

Across the country, campaigns are going from strength to strength.

Days of action are to take place across the country this Sunday, 14 March.

Campaigners will leaflet and canvass for their local TUSC candidate.

Days of action will also take place on Sunday 18 April, Saturday 24 April and Tuesday 4 May. The election is set to take place on Thursday 6 May and campaigners will be on the doors of local polling stations.

A trade union day of action will take place on Tuesday 27 April.

All trade unionists are invited to join other TUSC supporters on Tuesday 4 May for the final days before the election.
