Simon Hughes MP has today been re-elected unopposed as President of the Liberal Democrats. Nominations closed at noon today and Simon Hughes was the only candidate nominated. He will therefore serve for a further two years until the end of 2008.Suz Blog is delighted (if a little confused):
Liberal Legend is less impressed:
Been waiting on tenterhooks since the close of nominations to know if Simon Hughes has been re-elected as the party President.
Didn't want to jump the gun until I received the news through official sources but now it's confirmed. He's been elected unopposed for a further two year term.
Personally I very pleased - didn't believe the rumours about a possible challenger for one minute.
Yup, I've just had official word from Cowley Street. Simon has been re-elected unopposed. Ho hum..... Consigned to two years of impotent dissidence now.
