Press Release: Pirate Party announce first GE2017 Candidates

Wednesday, 26 April, 2017 - 14:15

As soon as the snap General Election was announced, Pirates rose from our ranks, willing to take the fight for free culture, evidence based policy, copyright and patent reform, and an end to warrantless blanket mass surveillance to Westminster.

David Elston, our Acting Leader and Lead Candidate for the Local Elections, standing in St Athan, Vale of Glamorgan will be furthering the campaign upwards, contesting the Vale of Glamorgan seat in South Wales against the incumbent Conservative Secretary for Wales.

Elston said:

Local Elections Leaders Update

David Elston's picture

While we congratulate our Finnish friends of Piraattipuolue on successfully getting not one but two Pirates elected in the municipal elections, one in Helsinki and one in Jyväskylä we remain hopeful that our local communities here will vote for the new, open and trust-restoring politics that Pirates can offer.

In the last election cycle we were heavily focused on the disastrous IP Act and DE Bill that the Conservatives were pushing into law, helped by Labour. We saw Pirates campaign nationally to bring awareness to this injustice and publish information on how to protect ourselves from these invasive and disproportionate new powers.

Final Call for Local Election Candidates

Hey all,

Across the UK local elections will soon be taking place. If you've ever considered a future in politics, this is the perfect place to start and flex your muscles.

Think Different, standing up for Sheffield.

It's General Election time and I'm looking forward to representing the Party and our ideas in Sheffield as the Party's PPC in Sheffield Central.

Five years ago when I helped Tim Dobson with his campaign in Manchester Gorton, I wasn't entirely sure he wasn't mad putting himself on the line for the Pirate Party. But I helped out and we learned a lot. I realised he was doing absolutely the right thing, providing a solution to the problems he wanted to solve.
