Happy New Year! 2018 is now upon us and we are all feeling that back to work feeling. This week we are being broken in gently with only the 1 Principal Council By-Election.
In Part 2 of this week’s By-Election report there are a further 8 Principal Council By-Elections with the Lib Dems standing in 7, 2 of which are Lib Dem defences.
This week in the rush to get the By-Elections in before the Christmas break, there are 2 Wednesday By-Elections which means an extra election report this week to see if the Liberal Democrats can keep their winning streak going into the Christmas break.
The Lib Dems will want to carry on their winning ways after a clean sweep last week although they were only standing in 1 of this week’s 2 Principal Council By-Elections.
The 4 by-election results this week form one of the standout weeks of this election cycle so far with the Lib Dems taking a clear clean sweep, holding 1 and gaining 3 all with clear margins of victory!
Another bumper pre-Christmas By-Election this week with 10 principal council By-Elections and Liberal Democrats have candidates in 9 of the 10.

This week’s 6 Principal Council By-Elections landed the Lib Dems with their best night of this cycle in with 3 gains and increased vote share in the 5 elections they contested.
