2013 Local Elections:

TUSC results first ‘early season’ league table

AS WE post this, counting the votes in Thursday’s local elections is still under way in most of the councils where polls took place.

This year there were 2,362 council seats up for election – mainly in Conservative-held county councils – in 35 English local authorities.  TUSC stood at least one candidate in 60% of the councils with elections, contesting 120 seats, 5% of the total.

When all the results come in we will post up a comprehensive seat-by-seat report on how the TUSC candidates fared.  In the meantime, based on the first 18 results for TUSC candidates in the few councils that counted the ballots overnight, we are posting an ‘early season league table’, listing the votes won by TUSC candidates in percentage order. 

More will follow.
