A total of 63 candidates will compete for 14 seats on Norwich City Council which are up for election next month.

One third of the seats on the council will be contested on May 22, the same day that voters go to the polls in the European elections.

Labour, the Conservatives, the Liberal Democrats and the Green Party are fielding candidates for all 14 seats, while the UK Independence party has put up five candidates, and the Left Unity party has two candidates.

In a statement, the Left Unity party said it was formed as a result of the budget passed by Norfolk County Council.

It said: “Left Unity came into being in Norwich as a direct consequence of the Tory cuts budget that was passed at County Hall two months ago. Every Labour, Liberal and UKIP county councillor as well as two Greens voted for the £189 million worth of cuts demanded by central government.”

Labour currently controls the city council with 20 seats, with the Greens forming the opposition with 15. The Liberal Democrats have three councillors.

  • If you vote UKIP in these elections you might as well vote for Labour. UKIP were the largest minority party but didn't have the guts to take on the job. All the dithering over the incinerator since labour took over has cost us council tax payers £30,000,000. Maybe ALL the Norfolk Council politicians should foot the bill.
