The by-elections on June 7th will see voters set to head to the polls as a result of the resignations of former OBA MP Dr Grant Gibbons in Paget East, and former OBA MP Jeff Baron in Warwick North East.

Paget East will see the OBA’s Scott Pearman match up against the PLP’s Curtis Richardson, while Warwick North East will see the PLP’s Curtis Dickinson match up against the OBA’s Justin Mathias.

Paget East has elected OBA or UBP MPs in the last four elections with winning margins from 64% to 80%, while Warwick North East has elected two OBA and two PLP MPs in the last four elections, with the winning margins ranging from 52% – 57%, so the Warwick seat will be the one that political observers are likely to be watching more closely.
