England Watch hopes that all candidates for these elections have already submitted their nomination forms. Yes there are three hours tomorrow morning but if just one of the 10 names on the nomination form is incorrect the paper will be refused and there is little or no time to organise a new set.
Last year there were:
EDP. About 125 candidates, two elected..
EFP. 10 candidates, none elected.
EPP. Stood their first candidate who was not elected.
Will there be any increase in the number of parties or candidates next month?
England Watch will bring you all of the details as soon as we can process the information
As well as the local elections and the London elections there are two other Mayoral elections, in Liverpool and Salford. The English Democrats have announced that they will have candidates in both of these elections, but after Mr Tilbrook’s London farce we will await the official announcement from the two councils.
