Labour: As the Government's flagship police reform policy, these Police and Crime Commissioner elections have been a complete shambles

Labour party press release

Yvette Cooper, Shadow Home Secretary, said:

"As the Government's flagship police reform policy, these Police and Crime Commissioner elections have been a complete shambles.

"We warned the Government repeatedly that they had the wrong approach and that turnout would be low. Theresa May and David Cameron didn't listen and it is shocking that they have spent £100m on these elections rather than on 3,000 police constables instead.

"The Electoral Reform Society has described the Government's handling of these elections as a "comedy of errors."

"Time and again on the doorstep people told us either they didn't have enough information, didn't know the elections were happening, didn't support them or didn't want to go out in the dark to vote.

"Theresa May and David Cameron need to explain why they have spent so much money on elections that have had such low public support, why they provided so little public information and why they chose to hold elections in November too."
