2013 Local Elections:

TUSC Doncaster Mayor candidate wins 1,900 votes in Ed Miliband’s backyard

Mary JacksonAFTER A recount delayed the announcement of the result, the first preference votes for the Mayor of Doncaster election have now been published.  The TUSC candidate Mary Jackson polled 1,916 votes (3.1%) coming in sixth place, ahead of one of the ‘parties of government’, the Liberal Democrats – and not too far behind the other, the Conservatives, who polled 4.5%. 

Another anti-cuts candidate, Doug Wright, polled 1.3%.  Mary and Doug’s combined showing will give confidence to anti-cuts and anti-bedroom tax campaigners in Doncaster.  Mary’s campaign in particular rattled the local Labour Party – with one of Doncaster MPs, of course, being Labour leader Ed Miliband. 

Listed below are the Doncaster first preference votes:

Doncaster Mayor first round votes:

Labour – 21,996 (35.4%)

Peter Davies (current Mayor standing as Independent) – 21,406 (34.4%)

English Democrats – 4,615 (7.4%)

Independent – 4,557 (7.3%)

Conservative – 2,811 (4.5%)

TUSC – 1,916 (3.1%)

Liberal Democrats – 1,122 (1.8%)

Independent – 1,110 (1.8%)

National Front – 1,066 (1.7%)

Doug Wright (Save Your Services) – 786 (1.3%)

 

Other TUSC election results are now coming in.  Below is a ‘league table’ of the first 44 seats we have full results from, listing the votes won by TUSC candidates in percentage order. 

Over the weekend we will post up a comprehensive seat-by-seat report on how all the TUSC candidates fared.
