By-election - Hanworth Village - 4 July 2024

Rashid Wahab

Rashid Wahab is the Green Party candidate for Hanworth Village ward in the Hounslow Borough council By-Election on 4 July 2024.  

Rashid said, "I am honoured to have been chosen as the Green Party’s candidate for Hanworth Village.  It’s evident that a council dominated by a single party is not producing the best outcomes for local residents: traditional politics hasn’t worked, and we need a fresh approach. That’s why the Green Party has grown so rapidly nationally, with a surge in elected Green Party politicians over the past few years. We now have over 800 local councillors nationally. This momentum will continue into the Hanworth Village by-election. A Green councillor will hold the council to account. Green politicians have the integrity that people expect, unlike the other parties.”
