Tory and Labour candidates lead battle for Warwickshire Police and Crime Commissioner post

Leamington Editorial 6th May, 2016 Updated: 28th Oct, 2016   0

THE CONSERVATIVE and Labour candidates are set to go head to head to become the new Warwickshire Police and Crime Commissioner.

Tory candidate Philip Seccombe, who collected 33,895 votes in the first round of voting, holds a slight lead over Labour’s Julie Jackson who registered 27,725 votes following the count this morning.

No candidate received a majority of the votes in the first round, so the election now moves to a second round.

Missing out on the next round of voting is UKIP candidate Rob Harris (14,553 votes), Liberal Democrat candidate Nicola Davies (11,509) and Independent candidates David Whitehouse (11,983) and Ben Twomey (9,076).




The ‘supplementary voting’ process now means anyone who voted for the unsuccessful candidates will have their second preference counted to produce a winner.
