The deputy leader of the Green Party of England and Wales has been selected as the group’s Prospective Parliamentary candidate for a hotly contested set in Brent.

Shahrar Ali has been picked to run for the Brent Central seat in the General Elections in May 2015.

He faces stiff competition from Dawn Butler, who held the Brent South seat until 2010 when boundary changes resulted in the new constituency of Brent Central being formed; and newcomer Ibrahim Taguri of the Liberal Democrats.

He said: “The people of Brent have been let down time and time again.

“From the closure of libraries and A&E wards to the privatisation of schools and council services -- all the main parties are responsible.

He continued: “More and more people are coming round to our way of thinking - and doing- for a long-term, sustainable way of living. Politics doesn’t have to be looking after number one. It can be about the common good for all, including the species we share the planet with and what we leave behind for our children’s children.

“As MP for Brent Central, I will fight for everybody’s right to a decent life - education, health and meaningful work - and an economy that doesn’t short-change the planet every time we buy more than we need.”
