Local Lib-Dem By Election victory

by Gareth Wilson on 1 December, 2008


At the recent by-election for the Teversham seat on South Cambs District Council Lib Dem Frances Amrani won the seat in a 3 cornered fight. The seat had previously been held by the Tories but this time Frances easily took first place with a 5% point margin.

The third candidate, an ex-labour councillor standing as an independent, came a good third. Frances’ success is probably due to a combination of her active local involvement on the one hand and voter disenchantment with the Tory council on the other. She ran a strong and effective campaign and was duly rewarded!

The full result:

Frances Amrani (Lib Dem): 269
Colin Barker (Conservative): 237
Dave Kelleway (Independant): 191
