On Thursday the 8th March the EDP contested a By-election for the
Bonchurch Ward of Leigh-On-Sea Town Council, Southend-on-Sea, Essex.
The result was,
Syrie Cox……Non-Party – 139 votes – 51.7%
Mark Maguire…..Labour – 67 votes – 24.9%
Lisa Simmonds…..EDP – 60 votes – 22.3%
Bernadette Jaggers…..National Front – 3 votes – 1.1%
This is the first time that the EDP have stood a candidate in Southend though Ms Simmonds has previously stood for a seat on Southend-on-Sea Borough Council.
They do seem to be rather fluid in their party allegiances in that part of the English speaking world, in the 2010 Borough elections.
Thursday’s Labour candidate stood as a Lib’ Dem’ candidate.
Thursday’s EDP candidate stood as a BNP candidate.
Thursday’s NF candidate stood as a BNP candidate.
