    I’m going to go out on a limb here and predict that Catherine Bearder will just squeak home in the South East ;-)

  • Jonathan Davies 1st Dec '12 - 4:24pm

    More detailed figures are in the Members’ Forum (in the Candidates’ Selection topic)

  • How many votes were cast, and how do they compare with last time?

  • Issan Ghazni name misspelt

  • Dinti Batstone 2nd Dec '12 - 4:17pm

    Anyone who wants to see the full details of the results can find them here http://www.crosenstiel.webspace.virginmedia.com/eu12/eu12se.htm

    @Mark Valladares :

    “i.e. the additional requirement for one BAME candidate to be placed in the top four, two in the top six. ”

    Is that legal ie not discriminating against people on racial grounds? Could someone quote the ‘authority’?

  • Jonathan Davies 2nd Dec '12 - 9:21pm

    Under the Equality Act 2010, the Party can legally use positive action in relation to particular under-represented groups as identified in the Act. For the purposes of these selections, the English Candidates Committee decided to adopt positive action for black, Asian and ethnic minority candidates.

  • Simon McGrath 2nd Dec '12 - 9:56pm

    Racism is racism whatever the reasons for it.
    can you clarify the definition of ethnic minority used ?

  • Very disappointed with the ‘positive’ discrimination rules, of which I wasn’t even aware when I voted.

    Regional members vote for the best candidates and then the English Party essentially says they don’t like those results and rearranges them. Disgraceful!

  • Out of curiosity, why is position 6 on the Yorkshire & Humber list shown as “vacant”?

    I know it is the last position but still…

  • Liam – this readjustment does nothing to have more BAME candidates on our Euro lists or to get more BAME candidates into positions where they are likely to get elected.

  • Rebecca,

    Thanks for the explanation.

    I presume the slot will be filled before the election. It gives the impression there are either less than 6 Members in Y&H (!) or else that the members there are just very shy. :-)
