What’s in the nomination papers for the Labour and Conservative candidates in Bebington?
Pictured above is Wirral Council’s Returning Officer Eric Robinson. The Returning Officer does have the legal power to determine a nomination paper is invalid (which has the effect of disqualifying a candidate) if either:
(a) the particulars of the candidate or the persons subscribing the paper are not as required by law; or
(b) that the paper is not subscribed as so required.
Although nomination papers and candidates’ consent to nominations are open to inspection until the day before polling day, due to a legal change this year the home address forms are not open to inspection by the public.
Below are the nomination papers and candidate’s consent to nomination for two of the candidates in the election of a councillor in Bebington. In alphabetical order by surname, first is the nomination paper and candidate’s consent to nomination for Geoff Jones (the candidate for the Conservative Party) followed by the nomination paper and candidate’s consent to nomination for Jerry Williams (the candidate for the Labour Party).
