Standing for Holyrood 2021 – Q&A all members

With the next Scottish Parliament election due in May 2021, it’s time to select our Green candidates for Holyrood 2021.

The selection process for all eight regions in Scotland will be conducted nationally, and nominations for candidates will open later in August.

Thinking of standing to be one of the Green candidates for Lothian region? We would urge all members to consider standing, but particularly women, LGBTQIA+ members, young, disabled and BME Greens, who continue to be underrepresented in political life.

This information session: This Q&A session looks at the reasons for standing and why diverse voices are needed in parliament. Put your questions to sitting Lothian Green MSPs Alison Johnstone and Andy Wightman; to John Hardy (Convenor, Rainbow Greens); and to reps from the Scottish Young Greens and Disabled Greens groups.

Note: there is a second Q&A session tomorrow, Wednesday 14 August, open to women and non-binary members, facilitated by the Scottish Greens Women’s Network.

Questions about the event? Contact Kate and Ben, branch co-convenors –
