Ealing Liberal Democrats become official opposition on Ealing Council


In this May’s local elections, the Ealing Liberal Democrats made gains against the Conservatives to become the official opposition.

Liberal Democrats made gains in Ealing Common and also won a seat in the previously Tory stronghold of Hanger Hill to increase the number of their councillors to six. The Tory losses mean they are now the third party in Ealing.

In the Hanger Hill ward, new councillor Athena Zissimos was elected taking a seat from the Conservatives after a long, hardworking campaign to clean up the area. In Ealing Common, new Lib Dem Councillor Connie Hersch, was elected alongside existing Councillor Jon Ball. In Southfield ward Gary Busuttil, Gary Malcolm and Andrew Steed increased their margin of victory taking half of the vote. With only a few hundred more votes, the Liberal Democrats could have made three additional gains.
