Peterborough by-election: Final list of 15 candidates revealed
The confirmed list of candidates for the by-election in Peterborough has been revealed.
The by-election is being held on Thursday, June 6 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. The deadline for candidates to be submitted has now passed and the final list of 15 has today (Thursday) been revealed by Peterborough City Council.
