At a packed meeting of the Christchurch and East Dorset Liberal Democrats Mike Cox was overwhelmingly selected.

Christine Payne, the Chair of the local party welcomed Mike Cox’s selection, saying:
“Mike is a popular active member of the Local Party who will work hard on behalf of Christchurch Constituency residents if elected as our member of Parliament. He has the support of members and leads a willing band of supporters. .I look forward to the day when he is elected to Parliament to serve as our MP – it will be the best thing to happen in Christchurch since we were represented by Baroness Diana Maddock.”
Mike Cox added:
“I am delighted and proud to have been selected to stand for Christchurch. We have made great strides in the local party in recent years. only recently we increased our support in Ferndown from 10 to 21% and pushing UKIP into 3rd place.
