West Central London Green Party fielded candidates in seventeen wards in the 2018 local elections, concentrated mainly in Westminster.
In Westminster, we stood in thirteen wards, finishing ahead of one or all Liberal Democrat candidates in all but two. Across the borough, over 3,000 people voted Green for change, averaging around 3% of all votes cast in the wards where we stood. Although this does not quite meet the 6% average from the 2014 election (at the height of the ‘Green Surge’) it does represent a consistent, base level support in the borough.
Two candidates stood for the Greens in RBKC, including in Stanley ward where there was no Green candidate in the 2014 elections. In this ward, the Green candidate finished ahead of all three Liberal Democrat candidates as well as the Advance candidate.
In Hammersmith and Fulham our two local candidates also saw some success. In Addison Ward, the Green candidate finished ahead of all the Liberal Democrat and UKIP candidates. Similarly, the Green candidate for Fulham Reach also finished ahead of all Liberal Democrat hopefuls.
