LEADER of Cheshire West and Chester council Mike Jones has arrived at the Weaver Vale count and praised the Conservative party workers.
Councillor Jones, who is visiting all the counts in Cheshire West and Chester tonight, arrived in Northwich in a positive mood.
He said: "We've got a very good team of hard working councillors working hard in the community and we're expecting it to hold up well.
"Their work in Northwich has been really good and starting to move things to support the rural area and I hope it will be reflected for our local member of parliament and enable us to work in partnership.
"Residents should expect their MP and council to work together, sadly that hasn't been the case but hopefully after tonight Weaver Vale will have a conservative MP."
Cllr Jones will be heading to the City of Chester count next before finally dropping in on Ellesmere Port and Neston.
"I have just been to the Eddisbury count," he added.
"We won that seat in the difficult days so if we don't win it tonight we will be disappointed."
