Local elections 2023: Every candidate standing in Liverpool (2023)

With just under a month to go until Liverpool's crunch local elections - the full list of all those standing has been released.

The elections on May 4 will be Liverpool's most hotly-contested for years. They will also be a very complex and unpredictable set of votes after a huge raft of changes to the city's electoral map.

Previously Liverpool's elections were held in every three of four years, with a third of seats up for grabs each time around. This May every single seat will be contested and a full new council will be elected for a four-year term.

The number of councillors will be reduced from 90 to 85 and while currently the city is divided up into thirty wards represented by three members, this will change too.

The new ward map will now see Liverpool divided up into 64 wards. Within this there will be 46 wards represented by just one councillor. There will be 15 areas represented by two councillors and just three larger areas that will be represented by three elected city councillors.

Labour will be favourites to retain their majority and will beed 43 council seats to do this. But after several years of scandals linked to the ruling party, their stranglehold on the city council could be weakened.

The Liberal Democrats will be hoping to strengthen their position as the city's official opposition by taking more seats, particularly in the south of the city, while the Greens and Liberals will be hoping to build on their strongholds in St Michaels and Tuebrook respectively.

Smaller city wards could also mean more success for independent candidates and there will be a lot to choose from. The Liverpool Community Independents group - started by former Labour councillors as a breakaway group - will stand nine candidates, while a large number of independent candidates are standing as part of the Liberate Liverpool group, headed up by hotelier Lawrence Kenwright.

The full list of candidates is below. Two and three-member wards have been identified, all the others are single-member wards.

The deadline to register to vote in the local elections is 11:59pm on Monday April 17. Register here.
