Barnill Byelection Result: Greens Third with 11.1%

Congratulations to Michael Pavey for winning the Barnhill by-election on 3 May 2012 (not pictured above, but Martin Francis). The count took place on the same day as that for the GLA elections, at Alexandra Palace on 4 May 2012 (to ensure that any ballot papers finding themselves in boxes meant for GLA papers could be separated out and put in the right count). The full result is:

Michael Pavey, Labour: 2326 56.5%
Kanta Pindoria, Conservative: 1180 28.6%
Venilal Vaghela, Independent: 156 3.78%

The Brent Council result appears on-line here (although I think it is poor practice to round up or down to only the nearest integer). I have expressed percentages to one decimal place instead.

The Green vote was up significantly on the last local election of two years ago, with Martin standing as one of three candidates (vote share 2.5%). This represents +8.6% in a by-election, which is extremely encouraging for Brent Greens. Martin has appealed to the Labour group to take greater account of the negative impact of their decisions, despite this victory.
