On 6 May 2010, Brent Green Party is fielding a record number of candidates in the Local Election, an absolute full slate of 63.

Green Party local election candidates from all walks of life and backgrounds today gathered at the front of Brent Town Hall with Green MEP Jean Lambert and Green Councillor Adrian Oliver from neighbouring Camden.

Dr Shahrar Ali, campaign coordinator and candidate for Welsh Harp ward said: "63 Green campaigners dedicated and true have stepped up to the plate to make this an unprecedented opportunity for electors. For the first time ever, they will be able to vote for three Green candidates in each of the 21 wards."

Jean Lambert, Green MEP for London said: "I'm proud to be launching Brent Green Party's local election campaign. Greens have been campaigning hard for safer streets, less air pollution, fairer pay and better local services. Every voter in Brent will now be able to vote for a strong Green voice for all three seats in their ward. I'm hopeful that, as in many other London boroughs, Green councillors will be elected here."

Lia Colacicco Evans, candidate for Mapesbury ward said, “In the 18 years I have lived in Mapesbury we have lost our local greengrocer, butcher, ironmonger, a record shop and even the Post Office. No wonder people drive everywhere. We need investment to restore our high streets.”

Shahrar Ali continued, "We have candidates from all walks of life, from a disability rights activist, firefighter and a carbon reduction officer to a local publican, shiatsu therapist and a ballet shoe designer. We have candidates originally from Nigeria, Algeria, Sri Lanka, Bulgaria and elsewhere. All are united by a common vision of a socially just, inclusive and Greener Brent!"

Alexandra Freed, Green Party lead candidate for Queens Park ward said: "Vote us in. I dare you!"

  1. Statement from Brent Green Party: "On 13 April, we received notice that one of our candidates has officially withdrawn, due to a change in circumstance. Since this comes after the official publication of valid nominations by the Returning Officer on 8 April, we are no longer able to substitute a replacement candidate. Kilburn ward will have two Green candidates. In each of the other 20 wards, we are delighted to be contesting all 3 seats."
