The incumbent Metro Mayor, Steve Rotherham, was reselected as candidate for the Labour Party in August 2019 after receiving enough support from local Constituency Labour Parties.

Liberal Democrat’s (Attending)
Andy Corkhill, councillor for Oxton, Wirral was originally selected as the Liberal Democrat candidate, but later withdrew because of health reasons so David Newman was selected to stand as the Lib Dem candidate. Newman lives in Southport and stood at Liverpool Walton for the 2019 general election.

Green Party (Attending)
The Green Party candidate for Metro Mayor is Gary Cargill, an actor who has appeared in several hit TV programmes and Hollywood films.

Conservative Party (Unable to attend)
Jade Marsden was selected as candidate for the Conservative Party. Marsden was previously the parliamentary candidate for both the Bootle and Sefton Central constituencies.

The position of Metro Mayor of the Liverpool City Region was created in 2017 following a devolution deal between the UK government and the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority (LCRCA). The Cities and Local Government Devolution Act 2016 required a directly elected Metro Mayor for combined authorities to receive additional powers from central government. Under the terms of the devolution deal, the first Mayoral term was set to last until 2020, followed by elections every four years.

The Liverpool City Region is defined as having six boroughs which includes the County of Merseyside (Knowsley, Liverpool, St Helens, Sefton and Wirral) and the Borough of Halton.
