Congratulations Javeria Hussain


Javeria Hussain has today [24 May] been selected to stand as Labour’s Parliamentary candidate for North East Cambridgeshire.

Javeria grew up in a working-class family in Luton, and currently works for an international law firm with a career in regularly risk, governance and compliance.

Currently a serving councillor in Luton, Javeria is also a Director of Luton Rising (trading name of London Luton Airport Limited), the Luton Council-owned economic development company which owns a number of commercial developments including the local airport with the purpose of delivering social value to Luton and surrounding communities. Through this, Javeria has also supported the Oxford-Cambridge Arc initiative and East of England All-Party Parliamentary Group.

She also stood as a Labour MEP candidate for the East of England in 2019.

Like many in rural North East Cambridgeshire, Javeria is keen to champion and support those suffering from the housing crisis, long NHS waiting lists and the explosive rise in the cost-of-living.

A Labour government will bring a decade of national renewal that will transform the lives of the people in North East Cambridgeshire.

Speaking after her selection, Javeria Hussain said:

“I’m thrilled to be chosen to stand for Labour in North East Cambridgeshire, where I was honoured to be on the local ballot as a MEP candidate in 2019. I also have friends and extended family living in the wider county of Cambridgeshire for many years.

“I see the challenges faced by the local community after 14 years of a disastrous Tory government. Steve Barclay’s fingerprints as a minister are all over this truly terrible administration.

“I think it is important that the people of Whittlesey, March, Chatteris and Wisbech have an opportunity to vote for a Labour candidate and to support the policies that will transform the local area and Britain.

“Only a Labour government can deliver the change that North East Cambridgeshire needs: getting the NHS back on its feet and taking back our streets to tackle crime and anti-social behaviour.

“I will give voice to the hard-working people of this community and fight to make sure that jobs and opportunities are brought back to North East Cambridgeshire.”

Richard Howitt, former Labour MEP for the East of England and Cambridge County Councillor said:

“I’m really pleased to see Javeria Hussain selected as the candidate for North East Cambridgeshire constituency, and I’m looking forward to working with her to deliver the change our towns and villages desperately need.

“People in North East Cambridgeshire’s towns and villages want an active, visible MP that will listen and respond to their concerns. That’s not what the Conservatives have offered, but I know Javeria will be that representative.

“I wish Javeria every success in the General Election and look forward to welcoming more Labour elected representatives to the county.”

On Thursday 2 May, voters across the country will have their say in this year’s local elections.

On the ballot is the record of a Tory Government that has been in power for 14 years. With soaring mortgages, a record-high tax burden, a Prime Minister who can’t keep his party happy, the cost of constant Conservative chaos is hitting the country hard.

These elections put that into focus. Despite the Tories promising to ‘level up’ every region five years ago, no serious plan was ever pursued to address regional inequality and their economic incompetence threw Britain into a recession and a cost of living crisis, with working people forced to pick up the pieces.

In contrast to Rishi Sunak’s Government limping on, failing to address the problems the country faces and running scared of the British public by pushing back a general election, Labour has a plan to spread power across the country and kickstart economic growth.

Labour will deliver:

Growth in every corner of the country, so that every town, village and city has a role to play, and can reap the rewards of a decade of national renewal.

More money in people’s pockets, improving living standards everywhere and helping working people keep more of the wealth that they create.

And people taking back control of what matters to them in their lives and their communities: from decent access to public services and thriving high streets to the basic promise that their children’s opportunities will not be determined by where they grew up.

This is outlined in Power and Partnership: Labour’s Plan to Power Up Britain, a new campaign document for these elections. Along with the long-term missions Labour has already announced, it sets out how Britain can release untapped strengths in every country and region.
