Here Are The 60 Seats Where The Remain Alliance Has United Behind One Candidate

Lib Dems, Greens and Plaid Cymru strike pact to give each other a free run.

The Lib Dems, Plaid Cymru and the Green Party have agreed to not run candidates against each other in 60 seats across England and Wales, in an attempt to get more pro-Remain MPs elected on December 12.

Under the plan revealed on Thursday, the Lib Dems will be given a free run in 43 seats, the Greens will be unopposed in 10 and Plaid Cymru have been handed seven.

Labour is not taking part in the pact.

The deal, brokered by the Unite To Remain group, follows an agreement earlier this year in the Brecon and Radnorshire by-election, where the Lib Dems took the seat from the Conservatives after the other two parties stood aside.

Jo Swinson, the Lib Dem leader, said she was “delighted” that an agreement has been reached.

Adam Price, leader of Plaid Cymru, said: “In these deeply serious times we need grown-up politics that puts our countries before parties.”

Sian Berry, co-leader of the Green Party, said: “The crash-out Brexit the Tories are pushing for would be a disaster for people up and down England and Wales. And for action on climate chaos.”

The Lib Dems have also decided to stand down in Beaconsfield to help former Tory MP Dominic Grieve and in Broxtowe and in Luton South to help Change UK’s Anna Soubry and Gavin Shuker.
