62% turnout in Welsh Lib Dems’ leadership contest

by Stephen Tall on December 8, 2008

The first all-female leadership contest within the Lib Dems – to replace outgoing Welsh leader Mike German – has attracted a 62% turnout among the c.2,600 party members eligible to vote.

That suggests either Jenny Randerson AM or Kirsty Williams AM, the two contenders for the post, will need at least 800 votes to win. The result will be announced this afternoon, c.3.15 pm.

Both Jenny and Kirsty wrote articles for LDV during the campaign, which you can read here:
