General Election Results: More United's Members of Parliament


By Iona Gaskell | 09 June 2017


What a night. 

With 69% turnout, the election has ended in a hung parliament.

I think it's fair to say that nobody expected the results we've had. It will be a few days before we know exactly what it all means, but one thing is certain: this is a huge win for More United.

34 out of our 49 candidates have been elected to Parliament.

That's success rate of 70% - an incredible achievement for this movement and a strong victory for progressive values and centrist, collaborative politics.

Here are the 34 new MPs, elected with More United's help:


Rosena Allin-Khan (Labour)
Chris Bryant (Labour)
Alistair Carmichael (Lib Dem)
Vince Cable (Lib Dem)
Ruth Cadbury (Labour)
Geraint Davies (Labour)
Gloria De Piero (Labour)
Stephen Doughty (Labour)
Jack Dromey (Labour)
Christine Jardine (Lib Dem)
Liz Kendall (Labour)
Stephen Kinnock (Labour)
Peter Kyle (Labour)
Norman Lamb (Lib Dem)
David Lammy (Labour)
Clive Lewis (Labour)
Caroline Lucas (Green)
Ian Lucas (Labour)
Seema Malhotra (Labour)
Alison McGovern (Labour)
Ian Murray (Labour)
Rachel Reeves (Labour)
Emma Reynolds (Labour)
Jonathan Reynolds (Labour)
Gavin Shuker (Labour)
Tulip Siddiq (Labour)
Andy Slaughter (Labour)
Owen Smith (Labour)
Anna Soubry (Conservative)
Jamie Stone (Lib Dem)
Jo Swinson (Lib Dem)

I've already spoken to many of our candidates and I can tell you, our support made a real difference to this election. These new MPs share our values and the next Parliament is a better place with them in it.

You did this. Thank you.

Of course, not all of our candidates were successful. But they can all be proud of the campaigns they ran and the values we all share. We hope they'll all consider standing again in the next election.

As events unfolded over the course of the night, we had messages of excitement and celebration from Members. Many discussed how their engagement with the results has been completely changed by their stake in a movement that puts people over parties. Alex said: "I'm supporting so many candidates from various parties. More United is inspiring and energising me. I'm proud to be associated with you." 

The political situation is still unclear, but we're going to make sure More United plays a big part in what comes next. We'll be in touch in the coming days as we know more.

For now, once again, thank you.
