Overall totals of candidate in 2014 compared to when these seats were last fought in 2010 is;
In 2010 the EDP fought 96 Local elections!
In 2014 the EDP will fight 36 Local elections!

First prize goes to the North West for almost doubling the total from 2010, they would have done so if the Pendle guy had used his brain!

The number of members willing to link their name to the party is still in decline!

The EDP has managed to get 60 people to allow their names to be put forward as candidates for the European elections. 36 of these candidates also have local elections in their home authority, 18 are standing in local elections and 18 are not standing.

The 18 not standing include a number of members of the EDP National Council. One way of leading by example!

One thought on “All EDP Local Election Candidates 2014.

  1. Thank you for your report, just to add Dave Timpson, was due to stand in Tameside as usual but due to his father- in- law passing away was in Ireland dealing with the arrangements during nomination period, also Tony Backhouse who has previously stood in Bolton as now moved to Wigan, during the nomination period, and will be back next year contesting Wigan area, overall pleased with the increase in numbers. With regards to our candidate in Pendle, this was the first time he has stood in any election and it is unfortunate with the paperwork. Again thank you for keeping people up to date.
