Candidates named for delayed poll
A total of eight people will contest the seat of Staffordshire South, which was not fought in the General Election because of the death of a candidate.

The poll was moved from 5 May to 23 June, after the death of Liberal Democrat candidate Jo Harrison.

The seat was won with a majority of 6,881 in 2001 by sitting Conservative MP Sir Patrick Cormack.

Sir Patrick will again represent the Tories, while lecturer Jo Crotty has been chosen by the Lib Dems.

Paul Kalinauckas will represent the Labour Party.

Other candidates include a campaigner against the proposed expansion of Wolverhampton Business Airport, situated in the south of the constituency, and tabloid journalist Garry Bushell.

The full list of candidates is:

  • Joanne Crotty, Liberal Democrat
  • Paul Kalinauckas, Labour
  • Sir Patrick Thomas Cormack, Conservative
  • Malcolm William Hurst, UK Independence Party
  • Katherine Elisabeth Jane Spohrer (known as Kate), Green Party Against Airport Expansion
