Gordon Brown has now called for the General Election to take place on Thursday 6th May 2010, we have a look at the candidates in the Walsall area:
Walsall North - The Candidates 2010
• Labour – David Winnick
• Conservative – Helyn Clack
• Liberal Democrats – Nadia Fazal
• BNP – Christopher Woodhall
• Democrat Labour Party - Peter Smith
• UKip – Elizabeth Hazel
Last election, David Winnick kept hold of Walsall North for Labour polling almost half the votes cast.
Walsall South – The Candidates 2010
• Labour – Valerie Vaz
• Conservative – Richard Hunt
• Liberal Democrats – Murli Sinha
• UKip – Derek Bennet
No matter who wins at the general election, Walsall South is to have a new MP with Valerie Vaz hoping to take over from Bruce George. In 2005, Bruce George received almost double the votes polled by the Conservatives.
Aldridge and Brownhills – The Candidates 2010
• Conservative – Richard Shepherd
• Labour – Ashiq Hussain
• Liberal Democrat – Ian Jenkins
• Green – Karl Macnaughton
Last election saw another comfortable win for the Tories, Richard Shepherd.
