FIRST time voters will hear from politicians anxious to win their vote at a hustings meeting tonight.

Candidates fighting to win the Bethnal Green and Bow seat in the forthcoming General Election will present their polices at the meeting hosted by Queen Mary College's students union on the Mile End campus.

Students will then get a chance to grill the candidates on the issues which matter to them.

The constituency is currently represented by Respect's George Galloway who took it from Labour with a majority of 823 votes.
