Labour selects Javeria Hussain to fight for North East Cambridgeshire at General Election

Javeria Hussain has been selected to stand as Labour’s Parliamentary candidate for North East Cambridgeshire.

Javeria grew up in a working-class family in Luton, and currently works for an international law firm with a career in regularly risk, governance and compliance.

Currently a serving councillor in Luton, Javeria is also a director of Luton Rising (trading name of London Luton Airport Limited), the Luton Council-owned economic development company which owns a number of commercial developments including the local airport with the purpose of delivering social value to Luton and surrounding communities.

Javeria Hussain has been chosen by the Labour party to stand in North East Cambridgeshire on July 4.

Through this, Javeria has also supported the Oxford-Cambridge Arc initiative and East of England All-Party Parliamentary Group.

She also stood as a Labour MEP candidate for the East of England in 2019.

Like many in rural North East Cambridgeshire, Javeria is keen to champion and support those suffering from the housing crisis, long NHS waiting lists and the explosive rise in the cost-of-living.

A Labour government will bring a decade of national renewal that will transform the lives of the people in North East Cambridgeshire.

Speaking after her selection, Javeria said: “I’m thrilled to be chosen to stand for Labour in North East Cambridgeshire, where I was honoured to be on the local ballot as a MEP candidate in 2019. I also have friends and extended family living in the wider county of Cambridgeshire for many years.

“I see the challenges faced by the local community after 14 years of a disastrous Tory government. Steve Barclay’s fingerprints as a minister are all over this truly terrible administration.

“I think it is important that the people of Whittlesey, March, Chatteris and Wisbech have an opportunity to vote for a Labour candidate and to support the policies that will transform the local area and Britain.

“Only a Labour government can deliver the change that North East Cambridgeshire needs: getting the NHS back on its feet and taking back our streets to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour.

“I will give voice to the hard-working people of this community and fight to make sure that jobs and opportunities are brought back to North East Cambridgeshire.”

Richard Howitt, former Labour MEP for the East of England and Cambridge County Councillor said: “I’m really pleased to see Javeria Hussain selected as the candidate for North East Cambridgeshire constituency, and I’m looking forward to working with her to deliver the change our towns and villages desperately need.

“People in North East Cambridgeshire’s towns and villages want an active, visible MP that will listen and respond to their concerns. That’s not what the Conservatives have offered, but I know Javeria will be that representative.

“I wish Javeria every success in the General Election and look forward to welcoming more Labour elected representatives to the county.”

Seven candidates are hoping to win this constituency when voters go to the polls on Thursday, July 4.

They are incumbent Steve Barclay, who has represented the area for the Conservatives since May 2010, Clayton Payne Workers Party of Britain, David Patrick Independent, David Chalmers Liberal Democrats, Andrew Crawford Green Party, Christopher Thornhill for Reform UK, and Javeria Hussain for Labour.
