Liberal Democrat Leader Nick Clegg has announced the appointment of John Sharkey as chairman of the Liberal Democrats’ Fairer Votes Campaign – the campaign for a “Yes” vote in next year’s AV referendum.
Nick Clegg said,
I am delighted that John Sharkey has accepted this role.
This is a vital campaign for the country and I can’t think of a better person than John to run it for the Liberal Democrats.
John Sharkey is one of Nick Clegg’s closest advisors and a former MD of Saatchi and Saatchi, who worked on the Conservatives’ 1987 General Election campaign.
More recently, he chaired the Liberal Democrats’ 2010 General Election campaign.
