ELECTION: Tracey Crouch opposition to be chosen in New Year
Friday 7th December 2018
LABOUR is to choose a candidate to stand against Chatham and Aylesford MP Tracey Crouch early in the new year.
We understand that the party is now "on the hurry up" to get prospective runners in place ahead of a possible snap general election.
Miss Crouch had a 10,000 majority over Labour in 2017 but sources say it could be "soft" in the context of a poll shaped by the fallout from Brexit.
Party spokesman Vince Maple confirmed that no one has yet been chosen but the selection process will be take place "early in the new year".
Miss Crouch was unavailable for comment.
