On 8 June here in Portsmouth, we had a fantastic victory with Stephen Morgan winning in Portsmouth South – a truly historic achievement as this was the first time a Labour MP had been elected for 100 years!
In Portsmouth North, Rumal Khan stood for Portsmouth North, and increased the Labour vote by 9.9% – above the national average.
It’s very likely that we’ll be called on for yet another general election within the next year, and if not we have the local council elections coming up in May 2018. Our ambition is build on our success and win enough Labour council seats to really make a difference in our city of Portsmouth.
What can you do?
Donate to help us rebuild our election campaign fund. The General Election campaign for both Portsmouth constituencies cost around £13,000, and we urgently need to raise more funds for the future.
