LABOUR will select their parliamentary candidate for Dewsbury and Mirfield next month.
It is believed three aspiring MPs have made it onto the all-woman shortlist for a general election due in May 2015.
Kirklees Council cabinet member Coun Cathy Scott (Dewsbury East) is on there along with Nasrin Ali, a councillor in Manchester.
Pontefract councillor Paula Sherriff, an NHS campaigner who works for private health firm Virgin Care, also made it.
Dewsbury Labour Party chairman Mike Greetham said: “We’ve got a shortlist. The final hustings and vote will be on November 2.”
