English Council

The English Council is the governing body of the English Liberal Democrats, or 'English Party'. It meets twice a year on a Saturday, usually in London, and is made up of representatives of the eleven English regional parties and of the Young Liberals. The principal functions of the English Party relate to membership recruitment and administration; parliamentary, mayoral and police and crime commissioner candidate approval and selection; and disciplinary and conduct issues.

You can find out more about the English Party on the Liberal Democrat website, in the English Party constitution and by reading the committee reports (members only).

Regional Executive

The regional executive oversees the work of the regional party in the East of England. It meets around five times a year, usually on a Saturday morning near Cambridge. You can find out more about the responsibilities of the regional party in the East of England Liberal Democrats constitution.

This election is for a member elected by principal councillors - i.e. councillors who serve on a unitary, county, district or borough council.

Regional Policy Committee

The policy committee is intended to encourage discussion and adoption of policy relating to the East of England. This election is for three members elected by principal councillors - i.e. councillors who serve on a unitary, county, district or borough council.
