Candidates come forward to be Buckingham's next MP

Published at 5:45am 12th November 2019.

After over ten years without a full voice in Parliament, Buckingham will soon have a new MP.

John Bercow stood down as Speaker of the House of Commons and the area's MP a few weeks ago.

Now, we are seeing those wanting to replace him coming forward.

In alphabetical order, these are the candidates so far:

Stephen Dorrell

Liberal Democrats

Stephen has already been an MP, previously serving under the Conservatives in the Midlands.

He stepped down as an MP in 2014, but has now joined the Lib Dems.

David Morgan

The Labour Party

David is from Buckinghamshire and campaigns both here and abroad on social justice issues.

He has said he hopes to give Buckingham a brighter future.

Greg Smith

Conservatives

Greg works in marketing, print and design, according to his Twitter profile and is also a McLaren F1 supporter.

He has a wife and three-year-old son.

He last stood to be an MP in Hayes & Harlington in 2017.

Other candidates?

The Brexit Party stood down their candidate here.

At the moment, it does not appear any others have come forward.

However, the deadline for nominations is Thursday, so we will get a definite list then.
