Candidates in 2001

Now that the 22nd May deadline for nominations has passed, it seems that the proportion of black and asian candidates has not risen significantly; the Conservatives have 16, Labour 22, and the Liberal Democrats 25. The Conservatives have 94 female candidates, Labour 149, and the Liberal Democrats 132. (Guardian)

3,318 candidates are standing in total.
