Selection of European Parliamentary candidates for 2014

The English and Scottish Liberal Democrats are now inviting applications for selection for the Liberal Democrat Party lists for the English Regions and for Scotland for the next European Parliamentary elections (which take place in 2014). The formal advert has been published in Liberal Democrat News. The closing date for applications is 6 p.m. on Friday 27 July.

Potential applicants should contact the Returning Officer for the region(s) in which they are interested for an application pack. Applicants can apply for as many Regions as they wish, but must obtain a separate application pack and submit a separate application to each Region. Applicants cannot be shortlisted in more than two Regions, and will be asked to give an order of preference to the Senior Returning Officer.

Shortlisting Interviews will take place in August or early September. Members’ meetings will take place in October or November. The candidates to be included on the list and the order in which they appear on the list will be determined by a postal ballot of all members in November.

Queries about the approval of candidates and the special Euro conversion/assessment should be addressed to the Candidates Office at Liberal Democrats HQ, candidates[at]libdems[dot]org[dot]uk. Queries about the selection procedure should be addressed to the Returning Officer for the relevant region or to the Senior Returning Officer jonathan[dot]davies[at]libdems[dot]org[dot]uk
