2014 Merton London Borough Council election
All 60 council seats on Merton London Borough Council
Elections for the London Borough of Merton were held on 22 May 2014 to elect members of Merton London Borough Council in England. This was on the same day as other local elections in England and an election to the European Parliament.
In May 2013, four Conservative councillors had defected to the UK Independence Party, including Suzanne Evans, who later became a national spokesperson for the party. No by-elections were called as a result of the defections. In the election, all those who sought re-election as UKIP councillors were defeated, including Evans in the Hillside ward.
Labour gained seats from the Conservatives in the wards of Abbey, Cannon Hill and St. Helier; this returned the council to majority Labour control from no overall control. Labour won 36 seats (+8) and the Conservatives 20 seats (-7). The Liberal Democrats lost one seat in West Barnes to the Conservatives to finish with just 1 seat, whilst the Merton Park Ward Residents Association maintained its three seats in Merton Park.
