On Saturday afternoon, Crewe & Nantwich Labour Party nominated Cllr David Keane (Warrington Borough Council) as their choice to become the Labour Party candidate to take on John Dwyer in May. The process of finalising a county-wide candidate has still yet to be concluded with a number of Constituency Labour Parties still yet to meet and nominate a candidate. Chester Labour Party and Congleton Labour Party will be meeting on Monday evening to decide who they wish to nominate.
The process for selecting a candidate is rather simple. The candidate with the most nominations from Constituency Labour Parties will go forward as Cheshire Labour’s PCC candidate. There are only two applicants in the race with Cllr Keane’s Warrington Borough Council colleague, Cllr Russ Bowden, being the other. So far, Warrington South Labour Party and Crewe & Nantwich Labour Party are the only two local parties to have nominated, both of whom have nominated Cllr David Keane.
Once a candidate has been confirmed, a full profile will be published as well as information on how local members can become active in the campaign.
