Labour is still the largest party on Salford Council following the local elections.

Labour comfortably maintained its dominant position as the largest party on Salford Council in the 2023 local elections. The red rosette won 18 of the 21 seats on the council which were up for grabs in Salford, with the Conservatives winning the other three.

That means the council now has 49 Labour elected representatives, eight Conservatives, two Liberal Democrats and one independent.

One seat in each of the borough’s 20 wards was contested in this year’s elections, with the exception of Pendlebury and Clifton where two councillors were chosen after one person stepped down. That was also the only seat in which the incumbent party did not hold on to it, with Labour making a gain.

Counting took place at the AJ Bell Stadium overnight and the final result was announced at around 2.55am on Friday (5 May). Turnout was 24.2%. For the full election results, including the vote tallies in each seat, visit Salford City Council’s website.
