Huhne officially a candidate

by Stephen Tall on October 25, 2007

Well, there will be at least one name on the leadership ballot paper that will be dropping through Lib Dem members letterboxes in a few weeks’ time: Chris Huhne has formally submitted his nomination papers.

LDV has already published the list of the 10 MPs who will be backing Chris. He also has endorsements from a dozen Lib Dem peers, four members of the Scottish Parliament, one Welsh Assembly member, and 20 Council group leaders or deputies. The full list is on his campaign website here.

Chris is quoted as saying:

“I am delighted to be standing for the leadership of the Liberal Democrats. We have been inundated with messages of support and offers of help from ordinary members all over the country. Our campaign is a true grassroots movement.”
