Wembley By Election- Labour Won


Labour won Wembley Central by election with a substantially increased share of the vote and Krupa Sheth is now the youngest Brent councillor ever and one of the youngest in London.

Surprisingly Lib Dems held their share of the vote. However, the combined coalition vote fell from 54.1% last year to just 47.1% this year, and Krupa had a majority over the Lib Dems and Tories combined.

The result with last year's shares in brackets was as follows:

KRUPA SHETH (LAB)        1401    48.1% (42.8%)
Afifa Pervez (Lib Dem)    1022    35.1% (35.4%)
Madhuri Davda (Con)       349    12.0% (18.7%)
Martin Francis (Green)     138      4.8% (  3.1%)

Swing from Lib Dem to Lab 2.8%
Swing from Coalition to Lab 6.2%

Labour's share of the vote in Wembley Central has increased from 32.2% in the 2009 by-election to 42.8% in 2010 and up to 48.1% last night. This is Labour's highest share of the vote in Wembley Central since May 1994.

Labour's comeback is in sight
