Candidate for Hackney North and Stoke Newington

Alexander Armitage

I’m a children’s A&E doctor standing in this election to challenge the social and environmental injustices in our society, which frequently cause children to become unwell. Children growing up today face an uncertain and dangerous future because of climate breakdown- it’s vital that Green voices are present in our politics.

I’m passionate about Drug Policy reform. I am the co-convenor of the Green Party drugs policy working group and have led a team of experts over the last 18 months in a comprehensive rewrite of our drugs policy, which sets out an evidence based system of legalisation of drug use and regulation of supply - taking the drugs trade out of the hands of criminals and reducing harm for users.

In Hackney I’m hoping to build on my strong performance in last year’s local elections where I missed out on a council seat by 21 votes.
