Labour's East Brighton by-election candidate named
Chaun Wilson was selected last week as the Labour and Co-operative candidate for the East Brighton by-election on October 18. She is highly likely to get in.
Last the May elections in 2011, Labour won by a large majority: the three candidates, all sitting councillors of long standing, polled over 16% of the electorate. At a turnout of 40% of the total voters of over 10,000, nearly 1,845 voted Labour, easily beating the Conservative Party (856) and Green Party (800). The LibDems only fielded two candidates (270) when they could have had three. The Trade Union and Socialists Against Cuts candidate got 142 votes.
The Conservative Party have selected an 18 year old, Joe Miller. The Green Party have yet to publish the name of their candidate.
