On 6th May 2021 there will be a number of elections taking place in and around Liverpool. These elections were postponed in early 2020 due to the Coronavirus pandemic and have been rescheduled for May 2021. May 2021 would normally have been a ‘fallow’ year in Liverpool City Council’s election cycle, meaning there would have been a break from municipal elections.

City Mayor Election
Liverpool has an elected city mayor who serves a four year term before a new election is held. Liverpool Green Party has campaigned to abolish this level of governance from the city council and would instead prefer a more representative citizen’s assembly style set-up which would allow greater scrutiny and democracy.
Metro Mayor Election
Liverpool City Region (LCR) Combined Authority has a devolved region status from central government and is led by a Metro Mayor. As per the extra layer of governance for the City of Liverpool, the Green Party of England and Wales (GPEW) does not support this style of governance. We would instead prefer a system based on regional assemblies made up of representatives from all sectors of society, elected by proportional representation.
Police and Crime Commissioner Election
Police and Crime Commissioners (PCCs) were introduced by the Government to replace Police Authorities. Merseyside first voted to elect a PCC in 2012 and then again in 2016. The Green Party of England and Wales does not support this method of governance for local police authorities, we would prefer police forces to be supervised by and be accountable to elected local government. GPEW supports strong, democratic community policing committees in every neighbourhood.
