Following Simon Hughes’s announcement that he wasn’t going to seek to return as MP for Bermondsey and Old Southwark, the Liberal Democrats needed a new Prospective Parliamentary Candidate (PPC) for the seat.
The selection has now been run and won by Councillor Humaira Ali:
I was born and raised in southeast London moving to Bermondsey 8 years ago. Specialising in change management, I work across Government, retail and charitable sectors helping to recover failing programmes. I’m passionate about the African Caribbean Leukemia Trust, helping deliver projects and fundraising in my spare time.
I’m an active member of my local police panel and my local community. Since childhood I’ve always fought for the underdog whether against school bullies, someone struggling to make ends meet or the lonely older person. Now I want to fight for the basic human right that everyone should have a decent home, food on the table, access to good healthcare and a sound education.
I strive for a Liberal London where everyone has a right to equality in life and is empowered to make local choices.
