The Lib Dem candidate for a hotly contested seat has been announced.
Robert Swift has been named as their candidate who will contest the Nottingham East seat at the upcoming general election, on December 12.
The party has an anti-Brexit stance, and have said they will cancel Brexit altogether if they win an overall majority at the election.
At the last general election, in 2017, the Lib Dems came third in Nottingham East.
Nottingham East candidate, Mr Swift said: “I am proud to be standing for the seat I was born in.
“I grew up in Sherwood and went to school in Arnold and now run a small business in the area.
“For too long Nottingham’s Labour MPs have let down their constituents by failing to hold this disastrous Tory government to account. Britain and Nottingham needs change, it needs the Liberal Democrats.”
Several other candidates have announced they are standing in the Nottingham East seat. However the final list will not be announced until 5pm on Thursday, November 14, and may change in the meantime.
Chris Leslie – The Independent Group for Change
Damian Smith – Brexit Party
Robert Swift – Liberal Democrat
