They will have another chance to meet the three women on Saturday at the Hollingdean Community Centre in Thompson Road.

The formal nomination procedure is due to open on Monday 27 May and close on Friday 21 June.

Hustings will be held shortly afterwards to choose the party’s candidate for the seat.

The Green Party has already reselected Dr Lucas while the Conservatives have yet to start the process of choosing their candidate for Brighton Pavilion.

    So, a choice between a Lesbian/Gay activist, a Feminist activist and a former Tory Councillor. Why is the left-leaning electorate in Brighton forced to choose between these women on the fringe, with minority-issue axes to grind? Quite like Caroline Lucas, in fact.

    A ‘right-on’ political monoculture developing in this city…..

    That’s typical; a bunch of DFLs!
    Sorry Labour, maybe you should have chosen the best people for the job for your shortlist rather than resorting to type and being just a bit too pc!
    I’ll be voting for Caroline Lucas again then!

    Caroline Lucas is no different to the shower running the council. She will be out with the rest of them in 2015
