As the county council elections ended with no one party having overall control (of the 61 seats, the split is now 28 x Tory, 20 x Lib Dems, 9 x Labour and 4 x Independent), the Lib Dems, Labour and Independents have formed an alliance to take over control of the council from the Conservatives.

Although the roles of Police and Crime Commissioner and Mayor are non-political, the elections are contested by political parties.

  • PCCs and Mayors are elected using the supplementary vote system, with voters making a first and second choice.
  • If no candidate gets more than 50% of the first-choice votes, all except the top two candidates are eliminated.
  • At that stage the second votes of those residents whose first choice has been eliminated are counted.

The next general election is likely to be in 2023 or 2024 and probably fought on new boundaries – the 2019 election was contested on the 2010 election boundaries.


The Mayor of Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Combined Authority

Nik Johnson is the mayor. He was elected on 8th May 2021.

The mayor is not a ceremonial position, but rather that of a chief executive.  The incumbent’s job is to work on the strategic issues crossing individual council borders within Cambridgeshire and Peterborough – notably our housing, travel and infrastructure needs as part of the devolution process which puts local decisions in the hands of local people rather than central government.

Although being mayor is not a political role, Nik was elected on the Labour ticket on 6th May 2021, replacing James Palmer (Conservative) who was the County’s first mayor (2017-2021).

Police and Crime Commissioner for Cambridgeshire

Darryl Preston is the police and crime commissioner. He was elected on 8th May 2021.

The PCC is responsible for an efficient and effective police service in Cambridgeshire and Peterborough by setting police and crime objectives, the police budget and issuing crime and disorder reduction grants through his police and crime plan.  He also holds the chief constable to account, making him answerable to the public.

The office replaced the Cambridgeshire Police Authority.

While the role of PCC is non-political, Darryl was elected on the Conservative ticket.  He succeeds Sir Graham Bright (Conservative), the first incumbent in the post (2012-2016) and Jason Ablewhite (Conservative) (2016-2019); Ray Bisby was acting PCC (2019-2021).
