Reform think tank responds to Electoral Commission decision on Brexit Party name change
Today (Wednesday 6 January), the Electoral Commission has certified the Brexit Party’s application to rename itself ‘Reform UK’.
Responding, Reform think tank Director, Charlotte Pickles, said:
“Today’s decision by the Electoral Commission is incredibly disappointing and risks the longstanding goodwill in our name, built up over two decades of independent campaigning for public service reform.
“The Brexit Party’s application has already caused confusion for voters who have been contacting us looking to stand or campaign in local elections, or make donations.
“It is regretful that the Electoral Commission has failed to recognise this, despite having been made aware of it.”
