Local elections Leeds May 2012 – here’s a table showing which parties are standing where

Below is a table showing which parties are putting up candidates in which wards in Leeds at the local elections on 3rd May.

Some interesting points:

* The Lib Dems have ducked out of a confrontation and fielded no candidate in three wards in the south of the city where they came last in the poll in 2011: in the two Morley wards – where they performed very poorly last time round, and in Ardsley & Robin Hood, where the Morley Borough Independents are fielding a candidate.

* The English Democrats are fighting 11 wards and UKIP 14, both of them looking to cash in on a hoped-for collapse in the Lib-Dem and Tory votes. But they’re only going head to head in four wards.

*  The BNP are only fielding one candidate – in Middleton Park, where they came second ahead of the Conservatives and Lib-Dems in May last year.

* Despite its huge recent success in neighbouring Bradford, the Respect party is not putting up any candidates in Leeds

* The Green Party (standing in 19 wards) and the Alliance of Green Socialists (standing in 9) go head to head in six wards.
