An anxious weekend for incumbent South Wales PCC Alun Michael

An anxious weekend for incumbent Labour South Wales Police and Crime Commissioner Alun Michael – seen here waiting for the results of the last election in November 2012

Penarth may be on pins to receive the result of yesterday’s South Wales Police and Crime Commissioner election – but, unlike those in England, the Welsh results won’t be announced until Sunday.

The results for all four Welsh police forces are to be declared on Sunday May 8th making it a long wait for all the candidates vying for the £80,000 a year position.

The ballot papers of all those who cast their votes yesterday will not be counted until Sunday morning and the results should be available by about mid-day.

Should a new Police and Crime Commissioner have been elected for South Wales, the previous incumbent – Alun Michael – is duty bound to remain at his desk for the following week to ensure a smooth handover.

The South Wales Police and Crime Panel is due to meet within the next few days.

    I think the fan club for Mike Baker are going to be very, very, disappointed. Alun Michael by a mile.
    Prediction Labour will win Gwent as well Jeff Cuthbert.

      Alun Michael may have his faults but he’s been prioritising the safety of women and girls and intends to create stronger links between the police, the NHS and social services.

    he’s done nothing since he was last elected he’ll continue to do nothing until the next election (if re-elected) or he retires… the PCC post is totally unnecessary as Alum Michael has spent 3 years proving!!
