A few days ago England Watch hosted an article from a Merseyside reader saying that the EDP was standing two candidates in the Liverpool by-elections. Unfortunately this is not the case, hopefully someone knows why.
Just six weeks ago the party stood a candidate for Elected Mayor as well as candidates in 5 of the wards of the city council, including one of those electing next month. So why not in these elections?
Below is part of the original article, the full text has now been deleted:
“On the 5th July there will be two borough council by-elections in Liverpool. England Watch has been informed by one of our Merseyside readers that the EDP is standing candidates in these elections.
It is claimed that Neil Kenny is the candidate in Riverside ward; this would make sense as he stood in that ward only six weeks ago and received 103 votes (3.15%).
The candidate in Allerton and Hunts Cross ward is said to be Paul Rimmer. If the EDP is standing in this ward it will be its first time.
England Watch has run with this because it makes sense for two of the people who stood just last month to stand again.”
We await any helpful comment!
