Workshop explains Council elections

Published Wednesday, 29 January 2014

A useful workshop for prospective candidates for the Council elections in May this year, is taking place at the Enfield Civic Centre on Saturday 8 February from 10am – 12.30pm. Organised by Enfield Council, the workshop includes presentations by key officers dealing with election arrangements and chief executive Rob Leak who is Enfield’s returning officer.

He said: “This is a good opportunity for prospective candidates to meet officers informally and to ask any questions.

“We also want to make them aware of the rules governing elections and the procedures that help us to run the count and announcements. The workshop covers general information about the council; the roles and responsibilities of councillors; support available to councillors; and basic election rules.

“Anyone who will be involved in the forthcoming elections or is likely to have contact with prospective candidates will find this event useful.”

Please contact Melanie Harris before Monday 3 February to book a place on email: or by telephone on 020 8379 4199.
