Tower Hamlets Election Petition

We are 4 Tower Hamlets residents who after seeing what happened in the  2014 local Council & Mayoral Elections decided to challenge the result in court with an Election Petition. 

We organised the case ourselves: gathering evidence and collecting witness statements from other local residents. With the help of our barrister Francis Hoar, after a case lasting over 6 weeks in the Royal Courts of Justice, we won and the Mayoral election was overturned. 

We were awarded costs but in the months that followed we have incurred high legal costs and we are now facing a shortfall even after the sale of the assets we have aquired. 

We took on this case for no personal gain, our only concern was to help bring back democracy to Tower Hamlets. 

Please see this recent article from the Sunday Times highlighting our current situation or see the article in the photo above. 

Any donation or support will be very much appreciated by the four of us 

Thank you 

Tower Hamlets Petitioners
