Election success boosts membership
The Liberal Democrats are delighted to announce that the party now has a record number of members following its successes in the recent local and European elections.
There are now over 105,480 full members of the party, able to vote in the upcoming leadership contest, with 20,000 of those joining since last month’s local elections.
Commenting on the number of people that have joined, and continue to join the Liberal Democrats, Leader Vince Cable said:
“It is a sign of the real momentum that our party has at this time that we have exceeded our highest ever number of members.
“People from all parts of the country and further afield have recognised that the Liberal Democrats offer the country a way out of this Brexit chaos and provide an open, liberal home for those who want to stop Brexit alongside us.
“We welcome all those that share our values to join us.”
