Local elections 2007 - Election summary

To gain majority control of Kirklees Council, a party must have at least 35 seats.  The first 35 seats on the diagram have been shaded to enable you to see them easier.  If all the shaded seats are filled with councillors from the same party, then that party has the majority and therefore, overall control.

The councillors in the diagram are ordered by party so the party with the most seats appears in seat 1, 2, 3 etc, followed by the next party and so on until the party with the least number of seats appears in seat 69.
