In the European election results announced on the night of 26th May 2019, the Green Party won its first MEP seat for Eastern region, securing 202,460 votes.
Newly elected Green MEP Catherine Rowett said:
"The results of this election speak loud and clear: the Eastern Region has a Green MEP for the first time. This is a vote for real change, and it reflects the view of thousands of voters who want to see a different kind of politics. As Greens we have put forward a clear position to remain in the EU, to work across borders on the climate emergency, and to secure a better future for people and planet. This success could not have happened without a large number of supporters and volunteers, and generous donations from ordinary people who care. Thank you to you all."
The Green Party's success in the East of England is a result of hard work and commitment from candidates, activists, members and numerous others in the campaign team and shows the desire for real change in the politics on the Region, the UK and Europe.
Our campaign mobilized one of the strongest pro-European movements anywhere on the continent. The Green Party is proudly standing up for freedom of movement, for immediate effective climate action and for the rights of all Europeans to pursue peaceful and fulfilling lives.
This election has given us all the chance to tell the establishment that enough is enough, and to show the mainstream parties what kind of Britain we want to be. This isn’t just about Europe, leave or remain, this is about our country and our values.
We thank all those who have contributed to our success in the European elections, and especially those who donated to our crowdfunder. However, now the hard work begins and we need your support. Please consider setting up a standing order and giving us a monthly donation.
Any contribution you make will go towards the direct expenses of campaigning, including the substantial costs of producing and distributing important Green Party information to households throughout the region.
