Labour MEP candidates for London (and one for SE)


Above is a list of candidates selected by Labour to stand in the European elections next month (if they go ahead). My Newham cabinet colleague, James Beckles, is standing and another Newham Councillor, Rohit Dasgupta, is standing in South East region.

The Europeans elections are entirely by proportional representation. There are 8 seats for London, 4 of which are currently Labour. The Labour candidates were “ranked” by the Party 1-8 (see list above). So if  Labour did the same as 2014 Claude, Seb, Katy and Laura will take up seats.
