2012 Pembrokeshire County Council election

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The fifth election to Pembrokeshire County Council was held on 3 May 2012.[1] It was preceded by the 2008 election and followed by the 2017 election. On the same day there were elections to 20 of the other 21 local authorities in Wales (all except Anglesey), community council elections in Wales and other elections elsewhere in the United Kingdom

All 60 council seats were up for election. The previous council was controlled by Independents as had been the case since the authority was formed in 1995. The Independents retained control in 2012.

Councillors elected in this election are to serve an extended five-year term, after the Welsh Government announced the next elections would be moved from 2016 to 2017 to avoid clashing with the next Welsh Assembly election in 2016 (which in turn had been delayed a year to avoid clashing with the next general election).

Although Independent councillors won a majority, there were divisions amongst them and an Independent Plus group has emerged with a small majority. The majority became precarious following the resignation of former Plaid Cymru councillor Stephen Joseph from the group in August 2014.[2]
