Liverpool Walton: Labour hold

Shadow international development secretary Dan Carden has been re-elected as the MP for Liverpool Walton, with a decreased majority.

The Labour candidate beat Conservative Alex Phillips by 30,520 votes, 2,031 votes less than the majority at the 2017 election.

Ted Grant of the Green Party came third and Liberal Democrat David Newman came fourth.

Voter turnout was down by 2.1 percentage points since the last general election.

Nearly 41,000 people, roughly two-thirds of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

Three of the five candidates, Ted Grant (Green), David Newman (Liberal Democrat) and Billy Lake (Liberal Party) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.

Walton Labour chairman resigns over Dan Carden selection 'stitch-up'

The chairman of the Walton Constituency Labour Party, Frank Prendergast, has resigned, accusing party bosses of "a stitch-up" over the selection of trade union official Dan Carden to fight the seat at the general election. 

The 30-year-old, who grew up in Liverpool, was chosen on Tuesday ahead of city mayor Joe Anderson and North West England MEP Theresa Griffin. 

Local party members had asked for a local candidate. 

Mr Carden, who was born in Liverpool and joined Labour while at school, works for the Unite union, which had a representative on the three-person selection panel.

Mr Prendergast, who serves as a councillor in Liverpool and is a former council leader and lord mayor, says that puts the whole process into question.

He said:

As an outsider looking on, it was just unbelievably poor organisation.

It looks and smells like a stitch-up and I don't want any part.
