Polegate’s political parties are starting to stir in the wake of Theresa May calling a snap general election on 8 June.
Eastbourne Buzz has contacted all of the major political parties within the constituency for a response. So far, Maria Caulfield, the current Conservative MP is yet to response, along with Labour and UKIP.
The Green Party has said, “The people of the Lewes constituency now have two opportunities to vote for a bold positive vision of this country's future.
“The first one is to vote Green in the County Council elections on 4th May.
“The second will be a chance to vote for an MP whose values reflect those of the progressive, pro-European majority in this area.
“We are aware of calls for an electoral alliance, and we will be considering the best way to help fulfil the clear desire of the progressive pro-European majority in the Lewes constituency for a new voice in Parliament.”
Kellie-Marie Blundell, the Liberal Democrat candidate for the Lewes constituency said, “This election is a real opportunity chance to change the direction of our country and provide the people with a government that represents 100% of the people, not just the leave voters.
“With just 1,000 votes between the Lib Dems and the Conservatives in Lewes, this is a real chance to elect a local, dedicated MP who supports the Remain vote.
“I am standing up for an open, tolerant and united Lewes, Newhaven, Seaford and Polegate. And a united Britain as we face enormous constitutional change.”
