Candidate nominations for elections on Thursday 2 May

The period for the nomination of candidates closed at noon today. All the seats (i.e. ten County Council, two District Council, and one Witney Town Council) are currently contested but there is now a period (ending at noon next Wednesday, 10 April) during which a candidate can withdraw, so the final situation will not be known until then.

Details of the nominations for the respective elections are available at www.westoxon.gov.uk/elections2013 (see: http://www.westoxon.gov.uk/files/download/9513-5095.pdf for file download) and the summary position is:

· In the county elections, the total number of candidates for the seats within West Oxfordshire is 50; with a Conservative, Green, Labour, Liberal Democrat and UKIP candidate nominated in each of the ten electoral divisions

· Eight existing members of the County Council are seeking re-election, although changes in the boundaries of the electoral divisions mean that the areas they are seeking to represent may not be the same as currently

· The County Council will be making nominations details for the county as a whole available on its website at http://www.oxfordshire.gov.uk/cms/content/county-council-election-2013

· In the district elections, there are four candidates in the Carterton South Ward and three in Witney East – there are Conservative, Green and Labour candidates in both; and a Liberal Democrat candidate in Carterton South only
