Five candidates for the Inverclyde by-election

There will be five names on the ballot paper for the Inverclyde by-election on 30 June, reports BBC News:
  • Sophie Bridger (Liberal Democrats)
  • Iain McKenzie (Labour)
  • Anne McLaughlin (SNP)
  • Mitch Sorbie (UKIP)
  • David Wilson (Conservatives)
This follows the Leicester South by-election in May, where there were also just five candidates. That could in part by explained by the simultaneous city-wide Mayoral election, which attracted the fringe candidates. But perhaps we are seeing the start of a new trend?
