Following the local elections, Cllr Iain Roberts has been elected as Lib Dem leader on Stockport Council, with Cllr Mark Hunter elected as the Lib Dem Deputy Leader.
As Labour are now the largest party in Stockport (with 23 seats out of 63, compared to 21 seats for the Lib Dems and 14 for the Conservatives), Labour now take control of Stockport Council and the Lib Dems become the main opposition party. The Lib Dems won the most seats in the local elections last week (winning 9, with Labour taking 8, the Conservatives 3 and Independent Ratepayers 1).
“I would like to congratulate the Labour Group on becoming the largest party,” said Iain. “The 21 Liberal Democrat councillors will work for local residents as we have always done, and will be a constructive opposition on Stockport Council, holding Labour to account and protecting the interests of the people of our Borough.”10 Comments
