May 7, 2010

In a declaration made at 2.45pm today, Rupert, Paul and Charlynne were elected as the Councillors for Caledonian Ward. The results for the 3 Labour candidates were:

Rupert Perry – 2, 540 votes
Paul Convery – 2,503 votes
Charlynne Pullen – 2,245 votes

The nearest other candidate received 1,762 votes.

The official result is posted here.

As a result of the elections yesterday, the Council now has a majority of Labour Councillors. The new Council consists of 35 Labour and 13 Liberal Democrat. The previous Council had been 23 Labour, 23 Lib Dem, 1 Green and 1 Independent Lib Dem.

Paul Convery commented this afternoon “It’s a great privilege to represent this ward and a rather humbling experience to be elected by so many people. May 6th was an extraordinary election in Islington. Both our MPs were returned with increased majorities and Labour has decisively regained control of the Council.

“The people who voted Labour on May 6th have placed considerable faith in us to really turn around this Borough. We are going to change Islington from a place where the previous Lib Dem administration just believed in letting things ‘tick over’ to a Council where the community is in the lead and we actively create a more cohesive Borough in which we overcome poverty, disadvantage and discrimination.”
