What’s in the nomination papers of the 4 candidates in the Upton byelection of a councillor? (Wirral Council)
I’ll start by declaring a relative of mine is the proposer of candidate Alan Davies’, his name and other details appear on Alan Davies’ nomination paper below. I’m also an election observer.
Below are copies of nomination papers and candidates’ consent to nomination for the 4 candidates in the Upton byelection of a councillor to Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council following the resignation of Matthew Patrick. Polling day is on the 22nd November 2018.
In order to considerably reduce by around 20 pages what is being published here, I have only included the many pages of legislation for candidate Sellman (which was randomly the first candidate whose papers I scanned in) rather than all four candidates. The other three candidates (Clough, Davies and Robinson) did include theses pages (a requirement of their nomination) which are identical for all four candidates and can be viewed at pages 4-9 below.
Nomination papers and candidates’ consent to nomination are open to public inspection during certain days during the election and those inspecting are also entitled to request and receive copies. These are not documents that are published however by Wirral Council and contain information that cannot be found elsewhere (such as candidates’ date of birth and details of the one or more legal qualifications for each candidate who is standing in the election).
The papers below are in the following randomised order rather than alphabetical order – Sellman, Clough, Davies and Robinson. I’d like to thank Wirral Council for providing copies.
