The count at the 2017 General Election in Peterborough

Peterborough by-election: Final list of 15 candidates

Today (Thursday, June 6) is the much awaited by-election in Peterborough.

The by-election is being held today after Fiona Onasanya became the first MP to be removed by her constituents under a Recall Petition. The petition was signed by 19,261 of her constituents (27.64 per cent), passing the 10 per cent threshold needed to trigger a by-election. These are the candidates who are standing.
