Regional Europe United Kingdom Society and Culture Politics Parties Socialists Respect - the Unity Coalition
This category contains sites about the political party Respect - The Unity Coalition, which was founded in 2004. Its name is an acronym for Respect, Equality, Socialism, Peace, Environmentalism, Community, and Trade Unionism. In the 2005 general election Respect had candidates in 26 constituencies. George Galloway won the seat for Bethnal Green and Bow. In 2007 the party split into two groups, both claiming legitimacy over the Respect identity. Group one was led by the SWP, its candidates stood as the Left List. Group two was Respect Renewal, it contained Linda Smith and George Galloway, its candidates stood as Respect and as 'Respect (George Galloway)'. The Electoral Commission has continued to recognise Linda Smith as the Nominating Officer for Respect, thus recognising the Respect Renewal group as the continuation of Respect.
