Words from Florence Eshalomi MP

I am immensely proud to be re-elected for the second time as a Member of Parliament for this area.

To have the voters across my constituency put their faith in me is a responsibility I have never taken for granted.

To the residents in the former constituency of Vauxhall, thank you for supporting me for the second time.

Spending four and a half years as an opposition MP, sitting powerless whilst the Tory government made choices which were hard for our constituents, I promise to keep speaking up on your behalf on the issues that matter to our community.

And to everyone in Newington and Camberwell Green who I'll be representing for the first time, I thank you.

I will work hard to earn your trust and I'll be a strong voice on your behalf. I know both areas very well and I'm looking forward to representing you in Parliament.


Turnout in Vauxhall & Camberwell Green was 48.71 per cent (compared to 63.5 per cent in the former Vauxhall constituency at the last general election in 2019)
