North Tyneside gets strongest Green General Election Results in history

The General Election results are in and North Tyneside are celebrating the strongest General Election results ever!  Comparing this year’s results from the 4 new constituencies that are fully or partly made up of North Tyneside voters, we can see that our total vote share over those four constituencies are up significantly with a record 8.7% of the vote.  

In Tynemouth, the only constituency that is totally in North Tyneside, our candidate Chloe-Louise Reilly tripled our vote share from the 2019 election with 7.4% of the vote (up 5%).  We retained our deposit in all but one of the new constituencies and placed above the Liberal Democrats in 3 out of 4 of them.  In Newcastle East & Wallsend where Matt Williams came in third with a notable 12.4% of the vote (up 8.6%), we even beat the Tories!  In Newcastle North, Sarah Peters came 5th with 10.4% of the vote (up 6.3%) and in Cramlington and Killingworth, Ian Jones more than doubled our vote, coming in 4th with 4.7% of the vote (up 2.2%).

This builds on our recent even bigger share of the votes from the local elections where we polled at an average of 14.1% of the total votes over the whole borough.

Ian Appleby, Elections Officer for North Tyneside Green Party said “This kind of result is exactly what we’ve been hoping for – and shows that people are now seeing that a vote for the Greens is no longer a protest vote – it’s a real vote for change.  We are ready to move onward and upward and we’re calling on all our members and supporters to grab this moment and help us build on this success for a future we can all believe in and be proud of.”

congratulations to our four new mps

In addition, as the Green Party nationally we have met our target of a total of 4 MP’s for 2024, with three new seats and a new MP in our previous seat in Brighton Pavilion.  We stood in 574 seats, more than ever before. Nationwide, we received about two million votes, a record 6.8% of all ballots cast.

A Green Party spokesperson stated “We want first and foremost to say thank you to the voters who have put their trust in us – it’s an historic day.  This result is an incredible breakthrough for the Green Party and shows clearly how much appetite there is for something different from the status quo.

From left to right: Carla Denyer MP, Adrian Ramsey MP, Sian Berry MP, and Ellie Chowns MP.

Sian Berry in Brighton Pavilion, Carla Denyer in Bristol Central , Adrian Ramsay in Waveney Valley and Ellie Chowns in North Herefordshire will work so hard for their constituents and be the Green MPs our country so desperately needs.  We’re looking forward to working constructively with the new Labour government on some of our shared goals, and pushing them to be bolder where their ambition is lacking.”

The Green Party is the only national political party in our country which understands that environmental, social and economic justice are intimately entwined. It is working hard to prevent climate catastrophe, reform our democracy and promote a Green recovery.

The North Tyneside Green Party is a growing presence in North Tyneside, our membership, supporter numbers and local election vote share continue to grow year on year, reflecting public concerns and aspirations.
