Labour announces lineup of MEP candidates

Labour Party members have been voting over the past couple of months for the ranking order of the party’s candidates for next year’s European Elections. Existing MEPs automatically sit at the top of each regional list, with other candidates below them (based on the number of votes they received from party members). “Zipping” also comes into play in an attempt to ensure a gender balanced set of MEPs – Luke Akehurst has previously explained how the process works here. The order in which candidates are ranked is obviously important, as the higher up the list a candidate comes, the more likely they are to become an MEP.

Here are how Labour’s candidates will be ranked in each region:

    It would be interesting to see the voting figures and the turnout.

    • Andrea Parma

      In its press release Labour North writes “Nationally nearly 70,000 members took part in the process”

  • Karen Melchior

    Ranking also important as UK doesn’t use open lists, so no possibility to jump the list if you are more popular than the chosen one by the party. Most parties in Denmark use open lists, so even if I’m not on a safe place on the Danish list, I can get there by doing a good campaign among voters and not just party faithful. UK should try it. Increases the power of the voters to make a difference with their vote.

    • swatnan

      Good point. Open Lists and Open Primaries are the answer to getting ‘ordinary’ candidates higher up the lists. On analysis you’ll find that the best positions have all been taken up by spads and career politicians. So no change there then.

  • Brumanuensis

    I see my preferred candidates for the West Midlands were in the bottom 3. Oh well, a pity.

  • Ben Cobley

    I spoiled my ballot paper (article on the link explains why), but the London candidate I thought was genuinely interesting – Andrea Biondi – came last.

    Hey-ho, on we go.

    • Chilbaldi

      It was predictable that he came last. I put him high up on my ballot as I thought he would be an excellent MEP. But although he is a thoroughly impressive guy the campaign wasn’t as slick as the other candidates (and a bit too academic – sadly politics doesn’t cater so much for that). Also no endorsements.

  • Alexwilliamz

    Does this theresa griffin will stop texting and emailing me. Phew. I was getting concerned she was stalking me.

  • rekrab

    David Martin! phew, talk about a job for life, he been around for yonks.

  • gunnerbear

    I live in the Yorks & Humber region and are utterly clueless as to who the people on the list are.
