  • George Cunningham (LibDems Overseas) will be standing for the Federal International Relations Committee (Manifesto and Video)
  • Merlene Emerson (LibDems Overseas) for the ALDE Council Delegate (Manifesto)
  • Robert Harrison (LibDems Europe) for Federal Policy Committee (Manifesto)

Clearly, all members are encouraged to participate in these elections and we hope having members from outside the UK on these key committees will broaden their views and make sure that the voice of non-resident citizens is heard.

Please give these candidates your first preference vote.
