Election News Update 24th April 2010

150 Candidates for Christian Peoples Alliance
in May 6th Elections offer Conscience Choice

Voters going to the polls in local and parliamentary elections on May 6th will
have the largest spread of Christian Democratic candidates standing for office
in political history. Linked to similar parties across Europe, the Christian Peoples
Alliance is running over 130 local authority candidates and 17 parliamentary
candidates. In elections to Europe last year, the CPA ran joint lists with the
Christian Party on a national basis, winning votes from a quarter of a million people.

Party Leader, Cllr Alan Craig, is running for executive Mayor of Newham Council.

But we now need YOUR help please. On May 7th it will be too late.

If you live in London, we have just days to make the difference in winning 9 seats
in Newham. Every day now, evening and at weekends, we need you to come and
deliver leaflets in wards which we either hold, or are a close second to Labour.

Please, please don't leave it to others. The CPA has no staff, no funds and no active
support from any church network and relies now on how you respond to this email.
Even a few hours in Newham will matter. Simply email team leader, Peter Vickers on
northendchamps@aol.com or phone 07856 054554. The office is 5 minutes walk from
Canning Town station on the Jubilee Line or DLR. Why not make a day of it?

Newham matters because we have seats in one of London's most deprived
communities which relies on Christian service and action. This is about real action for
the poor. Given how good our vote is, volunteer help is needed more than ever. The
public in Canning Town want to put our posters up, but we lack the people to take them
round! Will you do it?

The Christian Peoples Alliance also has active campaigns in Greenwich, Croydon,
Brixton, Milton Keynes, Three Rivers, Liverpool, Bolton, Hyndburn, Dover and East Anglia.

Party spokesperson, Susan May, says the CPA election move springs from the
desire of many christians across England to run for office and offer voters Christian
policies based on values not shared by the secular parties. Speaking in a live
televised debate this week with Labour Treasury minister, Stephen Timms MP and
Conservative front-bencher, David Liddington MP, Susan May said:

"Across Britain, many voters are disillusioned by the drift to secularism of the big
parties. The Christian Peoples Alliance offer them values they can vote for, based on
church social teaching. We are a party of conscience, committed to social justice,
tackling endemic poverty and radical reform of our corrupt political system. Our aim is
not to be self-seeking, but to serve our communities."

Susan May told viewers on Revelation TV that Christian Democratic parties similar to
the CPA were elected to parliaments across Europe and were often found in government.
She also pointed out that in 2009, just 58 per cent of voters backed Labour, the Liberal
Democrats and Conservative voters, with many voters preferring new parties.

Parliamentary candidates are running across England (full details below) and are based on
self-starting Christian community activists seeking to serve their local communities.

Please don't forget to pray for all of them. If you can plan to visit a constituency
near you to help, please email our candidates direct via their addresses on the CPA
