Becoming a TUSC candidate

Posted: 21 January 2016

The Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition was set-up in 2010 to enable trade unionists, community campaigners and socialists to stand candidates under a common anti-austerity and socialist banner. The only provision is that candidates are expected to endorse the TUSC core policies platform (see http://tusc.org.uk/policy.php).

Election candidates who wish to appear on the ballot paper on behalf of a registered party have to submit to the returning officer, along with their nomination forms, a Certificate of Authorisation to use a Party Description, signed by the registered Nominating Officer of the party. TUSC has produced a form to process applications for a Certificate of Authorisation for local council elections, which is available on the TUSC website at http://www.tusc.org.uk/txt/358.doc. Submitting an application form will be taken as indicating a prospective candidate's agreement with the TUSC election platform.

TUSC has produced a summary guide for candidates and election agents looking to contest the English local council elections taking place in 2016 on Thursday May 5th, available as a downloadable PDF at http://www.tusc.org.uk/txt/359.pdf which prospective candidates and agents are encouraged to read before submitting an application form.
