Vikki Slade becomes leader of new BCP Council


Yesterday evening at the first formal meeting of the new Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole Council, an alliance of Lib Dem, Poole People, Labour, Green and Independent councillors voted together to make Vikki Slade the first ever leader of the brand new authority. 

 

Following the disastrous local election results earlier this month that saw the Conservatives fail to secure an almost guaranteed majority on the new council, Vikki played the leading role in securing a "Unity Alliance" to serve the people of Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole and giving them the change that they clearly voted for on 2nd May.

The new "Unity Alliance" Council numbers 39 councillors composed of the Liberal Democrats (15), Christchurch Independents (8), Poole People (7), other Independents (3), Labour (3) and Green (2) parties, and the Alliance for Local Living.
