Solidarity and People Before Profit Alliance candidates for the 2019 Local Elections

Adrian Kavanagh, First posted 10th July 2013 with updates as new candidate nominations announced. Any links in this post are to online announcements of candidate selections – there will be no specific links to candidate webpages.

The third of my series of rolling blog posts, in which I detail the latest information as to candidate selections relating to the different political parties and grouping and/or candidate declarations (as in the case of the non-party grouping). The rule of thumb here is that I will add party candidates in most cases only after they have been officially selected to run for the party  at a selection convention or by some other means of candidate selection. I try my best to find information about local election candidate selection conventions, but in some cases this information is hard to find and occasionally it can be some time after a convention takes place before I find this information and hence am in a position to update this page accordingly.

The post will focus on the candidate selections for the Solidarity and People Before Profit Alliance groupings.

In the 2014 Local Elections there were fourteen People Before Profit Alliance candidates elected and there were also fourteen Solidarity candidates (although they contested the 2014 elections as the Anti Austerity Alliance) elected. A number of defections in the years following the 2014 elections means that there are currently twelve Solidarity City/County Councillors and eleven People Before Profit City/County Councillors, according to my best estimates.

The candidates that have been officially selected to contest the 2014 Local Elections as Solidarity and People Before Profit Alliance candidates include:
