Mebyon Kernow sets out election plans
At its 2017 National Conference, MK members voted to put forward a candidate for the next Police and Crime Commissioner elections, due to take place in 2020, and to contest the next General Election, though resources will be targeted into a single seat or a small number of seats.

A range of other motions were passed at the Conference. In these, MK members:
  • Rejected the basis for the Sustainability and Transformation Plan for Cornwall which would require approximately £270 million to be cut from the local NHS.
  • Rejected the so-called “Great South West proposition” and reaffirms MK’s commitment to campaigning for Cornwall to be the unit for all aspects of governance and administration and associated public bodies.
  • Endorsed the “Cornwall needs a pay rise” campaign from the Cornwall Trades Union Council.
  • Agreed that Richard Gendall’s anthem Kerra Kernow (Beloved Cornwall) be sung at all future Conferences.
  • Condemned the failure of the UK Government to consider the distinct needs of Cornwall in their Brexit negotiations, and agreed to hold a policy forum on Brexit within the next six months.
  • Called for the UK Government to delay the further roll-out of universal credit.
