ELECTION 2015: Adam Afriyie holds Windsor with big majority

ELECTION 2015: Adam Afriyie holds Windsor with big majority

Windsor Conservative MP Adam Afriyie has retained his seat with vote of 31,797, giving him a majority of 25,083.

He said: “I’m just overwhelmed with the level of support in Windsor.

"The job now, whatever the shape of the government, is to rebuild the country and build a Britain that is better and more at ease with itself.”

His closest rival was Labour’s Fiona Dent who polled 6,714 votes, followed in third place by UKIP’s Tariq Malik with 4,992 votes and the Liberal Democrats’ George Fussey  in fourth place with 4,323.

Mr Fussey said: “It was a hard night for the Lib Dems and a hard night for the Lib Dems in Windsor. We’ve been squeezed and going into coalition was the right thing for the country, but clearly something that has cost us.”

Green candidate Derek Wall received 1,834 votes and Independent Wisdom Da Costa polled 500 votes.
