Jane Kennedy selected as Labour candidate for Merseyside police and crime commissioner
Jane Kennedy has been selected as the Labour candidate for Merseyside Police and Crime Commissioner.
The former Wavertree MP beat Peter Kilfoyle and Bill Weightman. It does not really come as a surprise as Ms Kennedy was the favourite from the start.
She will also be favourite to win the election in November, and become Merseyside's first Police and Crime Commissioner.
Progressives who were disappointed not to see any women candidates in Liverpool's first mayoral election will be pleased to see Ms Kennedy as the frontrunner.
