It’s not only Liberal Democrat MPs who are gearing up to vote next week. So too are their colleagues in the upper house where the leader of the Lib Dem peers Tom McNally now in government at the Ministry of Justice. Navnit Dholakia is unopposed for deputy leader but a new ‘backbench forum’ is also being created and that will see some contests.
Joan Walmsley and John Alderdice are standing for convenor and Kishwer Falkner and Jane Bonham Carter are contesting the role of deputy convenor.
Hat-tip: Mark D’Arcy (and thanks to those who pointed out ambiguities/errors in his post)
UPDATE: John Alderdice was elected convenor and Jane Bonham Carter was elected deputy convenor.
