Results 2021

We are very pleased with our results from this year’s local elections. This is because we are a new party and took between 2-5% of the vote in wards where we weren’t able to do any campaigning. What’s more, Paul Cowley has been working hard to support the local community and achieved 21% in Binley & Willenhall.

National Picture

Unfortunately, the two main parties framed this year’s local elections around national politics. This includes the government’s handling of the pandemic and the row over Boris Johnson’s flat. This has clearly been difficult for smaller parties to contend with.

Local Focus

We know that Labour and the Tories will continue to play politics whilst raising council tax, turning the city centre economy upside down and neglecting outer city areas. However, we saw many rejected ballots in several wards where voters had chosen both Labour and the Coventry Citizens Party. This shows voters are still loyal to Labour but also willing to support a new party over local issues.

Candidates 2022

We look forward to next year’s local elections and welcome applications from new prospective candidates.
