The Green Party is at the “forefront in the fight for equality”, say the two female prospective MPs for Milton Keynes.

Jenny Marklew and Samantha Pancheri were at the party’s largest ever national conference - where over 1,300 people turned out in support.

Ms Marklew said: “The Green Party is a party of hope and change. The conference in Liverpool shows what happens when you get a large group together who are all committed to working for the common good of us all.

“The atmosphere was electrifying.”

Mrs Pancheri added: “I’m proud to be part of an organisation that values all members of society and is at the forefront in the fight for equality.

“The Green Party of England and Wales is renowned for championing the role of women in politics, as demonstrated by the team of powerful and inspirational women amongst the leadership and elected representatives.

“In Milton Keynes, we’re proud to see that echoed in our local Green Party, as our parliamentary candidates – both of whom are young women – were keen to celebrate on International Women’s Day this weekend.“
