Hi Alex. This isn’t right. Here’s our statement that we issued on Tuesday after the Court of Appeal ruled that our original interpretation of the law was correct. The ruling has no impact on our investigation into Vote Leave, BeLeave and others.

Therefore, the law prevents the term ‘Independent Conservatives’ appearing on the ballot paper next to the names of these MPs, if they are independent candidates. You can take a look at our guidance for independent candidates, it answers this question and many others.

Hi, the law on this, set by Parliament, states that independent candidates are individuals who aren’t standing in the name of a party. They can’t use a party name or description on the ballot paper. All the law allows them to use is ‘independent’.
