You’re Not a Floating Voter – You’re An Independent Voter
The Independent Network (IN) is a non-profit organisation that provides support to candidates who are not members of political parties. Independent candidates do not have access to a large national party structure with its human and financial resources. The Independent Network was formed to attend to this inequality and will encourage the electorate to acknowledge the success and influence independents are having in Parliament and in local government.
98.5% of the population are not members of a political party, yet there is only one directly elected independent MP – Sylvia Hermon. While the vast majority of the electorate remains interested in national and local issues, most people in the UK feel that they do not have a say in how the country is run.
This public frustration and disillusionment with career politicians and party politics demonstrates an urgent need for independent candidates elected to public office.
