Mohammad Yasin MP has been unanimously re-selected as Labour’s candidate for the next General Election. Members across the constituency and local community groups affiliated to the Labour Party were given the opportunity to either re-select Mohammad Yasin or hold a full selection to decide who will be Labour’s candidate at the next General Election.

Mohammad Yasin was supported unanimously to continue his excellent work which has been appreciated by residents across Bedford and Kempston.

Commenting on his re-selection Mohammad Yasin MP said: “I am very grateful to all the Labour members, Trade Unions, and other affiliates who have shown their full support. I remain committed to doing the best job I can for the residents of Bedford and Kempston regardless of their political views.

“We are one community and I will continue to engage with residents, raise issues in Parliament, and fight for the fairer society and better Bedford and Kempston we all deserve.

Together we have been making progress on major projects such as bringing a new mental health hospital to Bedford but it’s important that we stay focussed and ensure that we get our towns the services we need.”

Chair of the Bedford and Kempston Labour Party Sam Blacklaws added: “The unanimous support highlights the fantastic work Mohammad Yasin has been doing both in Parliament and locally. He is always active, visible and accessible which helps the community either get the support they need or share their views with him.

Yasin demonstrates the principles of honesty, integrity, and hard work.

“His Labour values are clear in his previous work to save the maternity and A&E units at Bedford ­hospital, and his current work to bring much needed mental health services to Bedford. We wish him the best of luck in the next General Election, and he will have the full support of the Bedford and Kempston Labour Party.”
