Andy Street, Managing Director of John Lewis, is expected to have his candidacy confirmed on September 29th. If selected, Andy is likely to step down from his role at John Lewis.

Andy could be a successful candidate for the Conservatives, and of the devo-deal areas is one of the more likely to beat the Labour candidate, Sion Simon. Centre for Cities research found that in the 2015 General Election, the Conservative vote was only nine percentage points behind Labour for in the West Midlands area.
