Five of the respect party councillors in Bradford have resigned from the party over a row about George Galloway MP running for Lord Mayor of London.
Alyas Karmani, Ruqaya Collector, Faisal Khan, Ishtiaq Ahmed and Mohammed Shabbir say they have been left with no choice but to resign from the party.
Ahmed and Shabbir were suspended from the party in August after expressing concerns about Galloway's comments that he would consider running for London Mayor in 2016.
