Three candidates to compete to be the next Conservative leader in Europe

Wednesday, 10 November 2010
In light of the announcement made last month by the Conservative leader in Europe Timothy Kirkhope that he intends to step down as leader after five years in the role, the Tories have been looking for a successor.

According to ConservativeHome, nominations have closed and there are three candidates in contention for the role; they are Richard Ashworth, Martin Callanan, and Charles Tannock.

The South West MEP Giles Chichester, himself a former leader of the party in Europe, is in direct competition with Jacqui Foster to be elected as deputy leader while Syed Kamall is the only declared candidate for the Treasurer role and so has been elected unopposed.

Another South West MEP is also the running: Ashley Fox is one of four candidates nominated for the two available places as part of the Bureau.

The elections will take place in Strasbourg on 23rd November.
