NLP Press Release – Introducing our Candidate for London Mayor
After running a members only London Mayoral Primary, the National Liberal Party’s (NLP) executive National Council has announced that Upkar Singh Rai was victorious (with 69% of the votes) and will be the party’s official candidate for Mayor.
Upkar Singh Rai is an IT Consultant and Uber driver working in the city and lives in Ilford, Essex (see fuller biography*). He is also a member of the NLP’s National Council.
Upon hearing the result Upkar said, “I would like to thank all those who voted for me and I shall do my best to articulate mine and my party’s policies to protect and improve the quality of life in the capital.
He further said “London is fast approaching un-sustainability. A burgeoning population is putting undue pressure on housing (prices, numbers and the ‘quality’ of rented properties), green spaces (being built upon) and transport (growing number of people and cars). This is a major challenge for the new Mayor to address but I shall endeavour to offer some solutions and some ‘red lines’.
He added “I am also keen to find ways to promote community cohesion with the capital’s diverse population. I will for example to ensure that all Londoners have basic skills in English by offering free language classes. This will help them take part in society fully, and save government money that is currently spent on interpreters. I will also promote our belief in self-determination and promote our campaign to improve the identification of various ‘national’ communities e.g. Tamil and Sikh, in the all London-wide censuses. These are some of the main issues for a Mayor to address and it will constitute a large part of my campaign.”
Various pieces of literature and campaigning materials will be produced in due course to introduce Upkar to the Capital’s residents. A manifesto is being prepared. Please contact to register your interest.
Upkar is also free to be interviewed by phone or mail. Contact: Press Officer Emma Rome
