Wrecsam Conservatives.

Rumour has it that John Marek is not going to get the Welsh Assembly nomination for Wrecsam without a fight; and it is being suggested that a prominent Wrecsam Councillor will stand against him. The method that the Tories here are going to use to select their candidate will be the Open Primary method where anyone can register to vote. Knowing how unpopular Marek is with opposition parties in Wrecsam don't be surprised if there is a lot of interest in this primary and the more the interest the more Marek's hopes diminish. I wonder if Nick Bourne will intervene to protect the interests of his 'golden boy.'The Open Primary will probably be held on the 28th July.

Tories i speak to say Marek isn't happy at the open primary. I'm sure he's been promised an easy ride as a reward for his defection.
i hope i can get a front row seat for the selection meeting. his former supporters will be out in force to give him a hard time!!!

won't they weed out people from other parties? oh, maybe that means Marek too!

An open primary is exactly that open to everyone.

A little bird tells me that anyone wishing to attend the open primary will be vetted by the local Conservative Association first. Known members of other political parties will be rooted out!
