Russell Goodway, Lord Mayor of Cardiff, had to be reminded of the rules for those putting their names forward for consideration by a constituency party, by Welsh Labour Party general secretary Jessica Morden.
The former partner in the firm of Keane & Co, who made it on to the short list, was earlier said to have written to members of the constituency party stating that he was thinking of standing.
But he is understood to have told the party that he did not intend to break the rules and had not at the time decided whether to let his name go forward.
A party spokeswoman said that in such cases ‘we act swiftly to remind candidates of their obligations under the code of conduct and to halt any of these actions’.
The prospective candidate is due to be selected tomorrow to replace Sir Ray Powell, who dies late last year.
