Christine Oddy Backed As European Election Candidate

Euro MP Christine Oddy' s bid to seek a third term in the European Parliament has been overwhelmingly backed by Labour Party members in her Coventry and North Warwickshire constituency.

More than 90 per cent of members in the constituency, which covers Coventry, Meriden, North Warwickshire, Nuneaton and Solihull, voted to re-adopt her as a candidate for the elections which take place in June next year. The turnout in the postal ballot was the second highest in the region.

Ms Oddy, a Euro MP since 1989, is now guaranteed a place on Labour's list of candidates for the eight seats in the new constituency which will cover the whole of the West Midlands region. Voting will take place under the proportional representation system in which seats will be allocated in proportion to the percentage which each party polls.  A special panel will interview candidates next month to decide the order in which they should placed on the ballot paper and the decision will have to be ratified by Labour's annual conference later in September.

Ms Oddy said:

"I want to thank the members for the confidence which they have shown in me and pledge to go on fighting in Europe for the interests of the constituency and the West Midlands."
