Simon Kirby, MP for Brighton Kemptown and Peacehaven, moved quickly to congratulate the new Labour candidate on her selection to contest the seat at the 2015 General Election.

Labour have selected Nancy Platts, who stood unsuccessfully in Brighton Pavilion in 2010, to be their candidate in Kemptown & Peacehaven in 2015.

Simon said:

“Congratulations to Nancy on securing the Labour nomination for this seat. As the Member of Parliament for Brighton Kemptown and Peacehaven I know what a special place it is and I would be happy to show Labour’s new candidate the many wonderful parts of the constituency.”

 He added:

“Since 2010 I have been working hard across the constituency, taking up thousands of cases on behalf of residents, from the Marina to Moulsecoomb and from the pier to Peacehaven. I will continue to do my best for all residents, regardless of how they vote.”

“I would also like to add my commiserations to Katie Ghose, who, as someone with local links, would have been a good candidate. Some people may be surprised Labour have selected someone from London over a local candidate”

 He concluded by saying:

“I always believe that people want to see politicians rise above petty, personal, point scoring and see them tackle the real issues like unemployment, the wider economy and immigration. These are the issues I focus on every day and I hope the new Labour candidate will join me in promising to run a clean campaign.”

“Constituents can rest assured that rather than obsessing about elections I am getting on with the job of representing local people in Parliament.”
