EMLD make a splash in Eastleigh byelection

528113_10151729160864622_864211795_n (2)EMLD made a big impact at the Eastleigh byelection on Saturday, taking a large contingent of members to Hampshire on Saturday (16th February) to canvass for candidate Mike Thornton.

We drove to the constituency in a battle-bus after holding our Annual General Meeting at the party HQ in Westminster.

We received positive feedback about the impact of EMLD and also met Nick Clegg who visited the local campaign HQ in Eastleigh after touring the local area.

Some EMLD members had already helped out in the byelection before Saturday, and others plan to visit again in the coming days.

Issan Ghanzi, who was re-elected unopposed as chairperson of EMLD earlier in the day, said he was delighted by the turnout for the action day in Eastleigh as well as the AGM.
