Eight weeks ago we set out plans to give every Londoner the chance to become the Conservative Partys candidate for Mayor of London, and to give all Londoners the chance to play a part in the selection process.Nick Ferrari come in?
Since then we have received a number of excellent applications. This has been extremely encouraging. We have also received expressions of interest from a number of very serious potential candidates for whom the timescale we originally set is too restrictive.
Given that the mayoral elections are still nearly two years away, we are therefore extending the deadline to give these and others the chance to come forward.
We want as wide a range of people as possible to take part in this exciting and innovative process with a view to selecting a candidate next spring.
