>Writ moved in Oldham East & Saddleworth Election

>The Liberal Democrats have served the writ which will bring about the by-election in Oldham East and Saddleworth. This will decide who will replace disgraced former Labour MP Phil Woolas. Polling day has been confirmed for January 13th.

Having it on this date breaks the convention of not having a by-election over Christmas, but the delivering of the writ had to be delayed while Phil Woolas continued his legal battle. The people of Oldham East & Saddleworth will now have an MP in place by the middle of January.

In May, Liberal Democrat Elwyn Watkins was only 103 votes behind Labour.
