ELECTION 2012: Cardiff’s local election candidates mapped

On Thursday, Cardiff Council released details of all the candidates nominated to stand in next month’s local election.

359 candidates from 11 different parties have been selected to contest 75 seats across the capital on May 3.

The Liberal Democrats and Labour are fielding candidates for every single seat, while the Conservatives will contest 74 out of 75, and Plaid Cymru is putting forward 70 prospective councillors.

The Green Party plans to contest half the available seats with 37 candidates, while 12 independents are running in wards including Rhiwbina, Llandaff North, Heath and Rumney.

The Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition have put forward six candidates, the Welsh Communists four, the Christian Party three, UKIP two, and the Socialist Labour Party will aim to take one seat in Butetown.

To find out who’s been nominated to stand in your ward, take a look at the map above – clicking on your part of the city will show which party the ward is currently held by, who the incumbent councillors are, and will bring up a list of the candidates for May 3.

Alternatively, have a look at this spreadsheet which shows how many candidates from each party are standing in each area. Candidates have until noon on April 11 to withdraw from the process.
