North Croydon MP Steve Reed is looking to defend his safe Labour seat in Croydon North after taking over a 60 per cent share of the vote just two year’s ago.
These are the candidate listed below and the details of the votes and percentages at the last election in 2015.
Lee Berks – Independent
Samuel Kasumu – Conservative
Social entrepreneur Samuel Kasumu has been announced as the Tory candidate for Croydon North, and with the party doing well in the polls, he will be looking to make a dent in Steve Reed’s large Labour majority.
Mr Kasumu says he has always been passionate about social mobility, and as well as founding the charity Elevation Networks, which helps tackle racial and gender inequality in the workplace, he started up Inclusive Boards, an agency designed to support the third and public sector to hire more black, Asian and minority ethnic (BAME) people at board level.
John Pindar – Liberal Democrat
Former teacher Mr Pindar now writes fiction and has lived in south London for more than 30 years. He was a councillor on Lambeth Council between 1994 and 1998 and again between 2002 and 2006. Mr Pindar lists foreign travel – especially to the former Yugoslavia – going to the cinema and restoring old aircraft among his interests.
Steve Reed – Labour
Michael Swadling – UKIP
