Name: Ben Duncan
Candidate for: Brighton Kemptown
Why I want to be an MP: The Brighton Kemptown parliamentary seat is made up of several distinct communities – and I think they need a champion: someone who’ll listen to them,
rather than party leaders, when faced with difficult decisions.
Being free from a party whip becomes more important than ever in a hung parliament scenario.
I think voters are ready for a new political era based on fairness and honesty – and in areas, like here, where the Green Party are the main challengers to the Tory and Labour candidates, we’ll do well.
If there’s one issue that will win the seat for me I think it’ll be our proposals for strengthening the economy and creating jobs and, if I’m elected, my first priority for change would be a massive investment in renewable energy technologies and public transport to start putting them into practice.
