Poor Turnout at the PCC Elections
The government's being criticised over the elections for Police Commissioners in England and Wales.
David Cameron's insisted that Police Commissioners do have a mandate despite what's expected to be the lowest voter turnout in peacetime history. Estimates suggest only 18 per cent of people voted. Labour has described the elections as a "shambles."
Official West Midlands figures showed turnout was 12.8% in Birmingham and 12.5% in both Walsall and Solihull, while just 12.1% of voters bothered to cast their ballots in Sandwell. In Coventry just 10.54% voted while in Warwickshire 15.7 percent of people turned out to vote.
