Guest speaker confirmed

Guest speaker confirmed for the CIoJ presidential handover

4 February 2012

Siobhan Benita, the independent candidate in the 2012 London mayoral election, is to be the guest speaker at the CIoJ presidential handover ceremony next month.

Siobhan polled 83,914 first-preference votes, finishing fourth, just 7,860 votes behind the Liberal Democrat candidate.

Former Cabinet Secretary Sir Gus O’Donnell said Siobhan, an ex-civil servant, had done extremely well, with no party machine to support her campaign, very little funding or media coverage, and no political broadcast.

She plans to build on that success when she stands again for Mayor of London in 2016.

The handover will be in London on February 20. For full details, or to register your attendance, contact Diane Cooper at the Institute head office.
