The Green Party has announced its candidates for Caerphilly and Islwyn ahead of next year’s General Election.
Katy Beddoe, a mother and youth worker, will be standing in Caerphilly, while Peter Varley, a computer scientist, will be looking to get elected in Islwyn.
Ms Beddoe said: “I hoped that Ed Miliband would bring socialism back to Labour.
“After three years of disappointment and the same old neo-liberal agenda with sprinkles of pseudo-socialism, I gave up.”
Mr Varely said: “We must ensure that everyone can afford nutritious food to eat, clean water to drink, and a home to live in.”
