Sanjay Samani has been re-selected as the candidate for Angus Liberal Democrats for next year’s General Election.

Sanjay has stood up for Angus residents as a campaigner for many years and was the Lib Dem candidate at the 2010 General Election and at the 2011 Scottish Elections.

Sanjay said: “It is a real honour to be selected to represent the Angus Lib Dems again and I would like to thank the members for their continued support.

“There has been a clear message from voters in every election since 2010. We are all fed up with the same old politics, where our voices are not heard and we feel we cannot make a difference.

“Angus voters made it very clear that we want to remain part of the UK at the Independence Referendum, but also that we want the way we do politics to change. All political parties are committed to further devolution to Scotland and, as a Lib Dem MP, I would work for Home Rule for Scotland. But that does not go far enough.”

“Only the Lib Dems are both committed to changing politics and could also be in government to force through the changes we all need. Labour and the Tories have repeatedly blocked change. The SNP cannot and will not be part of the government. The Lib Dems gave you a say on voting change, but our plans for giving you real power to sack your MP, clean up money in politics and having an elected House of Lords have all been blocked, by hard right wing Tories and Labour - desperate to hold on to power.

“With only six MPs, the SNP cannot make a difference and as they are determined to split our country apart, are not worried about how Westminster is run.

“Only with a Scottish Lib Dem can people in Angus be confident that their MP is working for real change to make sure their voice is heard.”

Chair of the Angus and Mearns Lib Dems, Clive Sneddon said, “Sanjay is a worthy candidate and I am delighted that he has agreed to represent the party again at the General Election. Sanjay has stood up for families working in Angus and the elderly. He will work hard to represent everyone in Angus at Westminster.”
