Peter Kilfoyle and Jane Kennedy go head-to-head for Labour's nomination for elected police and crime commissioner
Old Labour foes Peter Kilfoyle and Jane Kennedy are going to go head to head for the party's nomination for Merseyside's Police and Crime Commissioner.
Ms Kennedy was the first out of the blocks, but Mr Kilfoyle has now confirmed that he too will be standing.
Seasoned observers will remember how the pair fell out, publicly over the selection of Luciana Berger to replace Ms Kennedy in Liverpool's Wavertree seat ('student politician').
Both are ex-ministers and would bring a lot of experience to the job. Mr Kilfoyle will point to his role in helping bring drug smugglers John Haase and Paul Bennett to justice as part of his credentials to do the job.
While Ms Kennedy will point to her experience as a security minister in Northern Ireland.
The Labour party will start its shortlisting process for a candidate later in the month.
Whoever wins the vote in November can look forward to a four year term and a salary of £85,000. They will replace the existing police authority.
