University to hold General Election Hustings
07 April 2015
Canterbury Christ Church University's Politics and International Relations programme has invited the Parliamentary Candidates for Canterbury and Whitstable to debate their party's policies in the lead up to the 2015 General Election.
Parliamentary Candidates from five parties - Conservative, Green, Labour, Liberal Democrat, and UKIP - will attend Meet the Candidates for the 2015 General Election, and make their case to the audience as to why they should be elected to represent Canterbury and Whitstable as Member of Parliament.
Each candidate will be given a period of time to outline their party’s main policies after which a question and answer session with the audience will follow.
Meet the Candidates for the 2015 General Election will take place on Friday 24 April at 7.30pm in the Old Sessions House building on the North Holmes Campus at Canterbury Christ Church University. The event is free and open to all. No booking is required to attend.
The hustings event is organised and hosted as part of the Making Politics Matter initiative of the Politics and International Relations programme and is being run in partnership with Canterbury and District Inter-Faith Action.
