A Tower Hamlets Labour Party activist is seeking the nomination to stand as MP for the constituency of Brent Central in North West London.
Chair of Tower Hamlets Constituency Labour Party Amina Ali would be the country’s first ever Somali MP if she were selected as the Party’s candidate.
She currently balances roles including chair of Limehouse ward, founder Muslim Women for Labour and chair of Tower Hamlets Fabian Society with her commitments as a mother-of-two.
The 43-year-old, who is a welfare adviser at Tower Hamlets Law Centre, entered the world of politics as a teenager and went on to co-found Somali Friends of Labour in Tower Hamlets.
