England Watch understands that the England First Party is to be de-registered in the near future. The information is included in the EFP statement of accounts lodged with the electoral commission by its leader Mark Cotterill.
The party was founded in 2003 and has fielded over forty candidates, including two this year. The highpoint of the EFP was 2006 when they had two councillors elected in Blackburn.
If the end of the EFP in nigh then that means that of the eleven parties listed with the Electoral Commission only three are in any way active! (Marked in bold print.)
