Greens expected to stand aside to support Lib Dems’ by-election fight

From The New European: The Green Party is expected to stand aside for the Brecon & Radnorshire by-election in a bid to show ‘Remain unity’.

The election was called after a recall petition received more than 10% of support from electors in the constituency.
