Kirklees Labor will go back ‘to the floor’ after losing local elections

The leader of Kirklees Council says the Labor group will go “back to the floor” after last week’s local election results left the council without overall control.

A scrupulous vote count on Friday (May 3) saw the ruling Labor group lose their majority, their number of seats falling from 35 to 31. Former Council leader Shabir Pandor lost his seat as well as two cabinet members – Jackie Ramsay (Dewsbury). South) and Mussarat Pervaiz (Dewsbury West).

A group-by-group breakdown of the results and the places that were lost or gained is as follows:

Work: 31 (-4)

Conservatives: 15 (-3)

Lib Dems: 10 (+2)

Greens: 4 (+1)

Kirklees Community Independents: 3 (-1)
