Stoke-on-Trent By-Election Final List Of Candidates

by Admin


Nominations have now closed for the Stoke-on-Trent Central by-election.


This is the final list of candidates who are bidding to succeed Tristram Hunt as MP for the Potteries seat.



The candidates are:

Mohammed Akram – Independent

Dr Zulfiqar Ali – Liberal Democrat

Jack Brereton – Conservative

Adam Colclough – Green Party

Godfrey Davies – Christian Peoples Alliance

Barbara Fielding – Independent

David Furness – British National Party

Paul Nuttall – Ukip

Gareth Snell – Labour

The Flying Brick – Monster Raving Loony Party

The by-election is due to take place on February 23. Eligible voters have until midnight on February 7 to register in time to take part in the by-election.

Labour retained the seat in 2015 with a majority of 5,175 over UKIP with the Conservatives a further 33 votes behind. Labour has held the seat since its creation in 1950.

The BNP did not stand in 2015 and their involvement on this occasion may well assist labour should some of the UKIP support transfer to them.  The bookies seem to think this will be the case and have shortened the odds for a labour win with UKIP in second place.

  1. John Shaw ( Party Official ) Only four or five years ago , Ukip were neck and neck with the OLD PARTY ( BNP ) LOSING DEPOSITS WITH 3 % TO 4 % of the VOTE and just a couple of hundred votes obtained in local election wards. NO MORE ! Millions of VOTES in Parliamentary elections and second place in THOUSANDS OF COUNCIL ELECTION VOTES IS THE RECENT ACHIEVEMENT. The British Democratic Party will have the success that our GOOD NAME AND CLASSLESS NATIONALISM DESERVES. BE BOLD AND JOIN US !

  2. Can’t see the bnp making much of a dent in ukip vote. if ukip fail to win here, and the Liebour rotters beat them, it could be the start of a downward spiral for them.

  3. I am glad we have had the sense to keep out of this Circus,in reality all we would do is lose a substantial deposit that would be trousered by the enemy.Is Paul Nuttall taking lessons from Griffin by standing in this election? does he really expect to win !!!! no prizes for coming second in this game only a ruddy great spend.

  4. Barbara Fielding is standing as an Independent candidate in the Stoke Central parliamentary by election but is the registered leader of the Abolish Magna Carta Reinstate Monarchy party (AMCRM), whose alleged ‘racist’ website makes the BNP and UKIP look like…Liberal Lefties.
