Windsor candidates announced for December’s general election

Political parties are readying their candidates after the House of Commons agreed to a general election on Thursday, December 12.

Adam Afriyie, who has been Windsor’s MP for 14 years, will be standing again as the Conservative candidate.

Natasha Airey, chairwoman of the Windsor Conservative Association, said: “He is a hard-working MP who is committed to representing local residents and we are confident he will continue working to deliver on the commitments made by the Conservative government to the benefit of his constituents.”

The Liberal Democrats have selected Julian Tisi as their candidate. He previously contested the seat in 2010 and 2017.

He said: “We stand apart as an open, tolerant party in favour of fairness, opening opportunity and freedoms for all.”

The Green Party have selected Fintan McKeown.

He promised to voice voters’ ‘concerns and ambitions’ and said ‘the Green Party offers the only viable and realistic policies for our climate emergency’.

The Brexit Party will announce their candidate soon.

Update: Friday, November 8

Peter Shearman has been selected as the Labour Party candidate after previously standing in the 2017 General Election.

He said: “As your representative I will be dedicated to working with you and for you to achieve the future that the people of Windsor constituency deserve.”

Update: Monday, November 25

Businessman and Windsor resident David Buckley will be running as an Independent candidate.

He said: “Stop tribal Party Politics and use your vote to put an Independent in place who can cherry pick policies to filter benefits down to you, the constituents.”

    It’s hard to accept the Windsor Conservative Association Chair’s view that Adam Afriyie is “ is a hard-working MP who is committed to representing local residents“ when he doesn’t hold constituency surgeries, doesn’t respond to constituents emails and meeting requests and, despite Windsor voting remain in the referendum, he has consistently voted in Parliament for a no-deal Brexit.

      exactly some of the main reasons for change in Windsor. The same old same old just does not cut it any longer. We need representation that works solely for constituents, as Party Politics is broken we need to still see someone fighting to improve our lives at the top table while the paralysis of Parliament continues for years due to the division being fuelled by the main political Party's.

    What a shame you did not cover ALL the candidates standing for election in Windsor. You have taken the time to cover 4 of the 6 candidates plus a maybe but have failed to be fair here on your coverage. Seems an oversight but a shame to democracy
