The new Women’s Equality Party has selected Sharon Lovell as their candidate in the Cardiff South and Penarth constituency at the general election.
Ms Lovell – a university graduate – is a director for NYAS, a charity providing information, advice, advocacy and legal representation to children, young people and vulnerable adults.
Party Leader Sophie Walker says “The new parties understand that the electorate are tired of combative, tribal politics. Along with the Green Party, who have endorsed my campaign in Shipley, and the Liberal Democrats who are forging strategic alliances in key seats across the UK.”
“WE [i.e the Women’s Equality Party] are part of a new political landscape that will deliver a shot in the arm to our country by working collaboratively and sharing ideas.”
She added: “We know we are outsiders, but in spite of the huge disadvantages of our first-past-the-post system, and the vast expense of campaigning, the Women’s Equality Party is set to make its mark on this election.”
