Draft Combined Authorities (Mayoral Elections) Order 2017 — Rules for the Election of Mayors of Combined Authorities — 18 Jan 2017 at 18:56
The majority of MPs voted in favour of proposed rules for the election of mayors of combined authorities.
The motion supported by the majority of MPs, and the majority of MPs for English constituencies, was:
- That the draft Combined Authorities (Mayoral Elections) Order 2017, which was laid before this House on 28 November 2016, be approved.
The regulations set the rules for elections for directly-elected mayors of combined authorities including:
- A £5000 deposit to be forfeited if the candidate obtains less than 5% of the first preference votes.
- A requirement for a nomination to be supported by one-hundred people, with at least 10 from each constituent council area.
- An official election booklet to be produced and distributed to electors containing election addresses submitted by candidates.
- For the elections to be run using a "supplementary vote system" allowing voters to express a first and second choice.
