Political Parties

Once you have decided you want to stand as a candidate you need to understand the process, both the legal aspects and what the individual parties do. Here we list the basics as well as how to connect to each of the parties. First start by reading the official Parliamentary Guide to standing in an election. "How can I stand?" then contact the general email or the specific #AskHerToStand contact, as organised by 50:50 Parliament
