The Rejoin EU Party, supported by Volt UK, has officially become the first to field a full slate of 11 candidates in the list section of the London Assembly elections on May 2nd.

You will have three important votes to cast: one for the Mayor, one for your local Assembly constituency, and one for the London-wide list of parties. Our candidates will be featured on this London-wide list.

Rejoin EU:

Rejoin EU party leader and assembly candidate Brendan Donnelly said: “I’m enormously proud to stand with such a diverse range of candidates for the assembly: we have former members of Labour, the Lib Dems, the Green Party and the Conservatives on the list. We are also partnering with Volt, which helps bring experience from across the British political spectrum to our London team, united by one cause: to return the UK to its rightful place at the heart of the EU.”

Rejoin EU assembly candidate and mayoral nominee Richard Hewison said: “In 2021, the Rejoin EU Party contested both the mayoral and the Assembly elections. As a result of the change to the electoral system and the current mayor’s strong pro-EU comments in recent months, we have decided this time to concentrate only on the Assembly list. We also reject entirely the disgusting Islamophobia that has been directed towards him in the last few weeks and urge all voters in London to do likewise.”

Volt UK:

Volt member & assembly candidate Charlotte Blake said: “In this time of positivity about the EU, I as a Volt UK candidate am delighted to be teaming up with Rejoin EU once again to offer London an opportunity to show its support for closer links with our European neighbour. Between us, we can demonstrate how progressive and pro-European Londoners are.”

Volt campaigns officer & assembly candidate Alessandro Gallo said: “I am proud to team up with the Rejoin EU party for the London Assembly elections. As a European immigrant, I value our community's impact on London. Together with Volt UK, we are committed to revitalizing London as a top European city. Let's enhance our quality of life and celebrate our diverse heritage to bring London back to the forefront of Europe!”

Volt member & assembly candidate Marianne Mandujano said: "As a Volt UK candidate, I'm thrilled to support the Rejoin EU party for the London Assembly elections. We are committed to a solution that reconnects London with Europe, and strive to make it a beacon of inclusivity and openness, fully aligned with our vision for a united Europe"
