Prem Goyal to run as an MP Candidate in Camberwell and Peckham in 2015
Local entrepreneur, Magistrate and community activist Prem Goyal OBE has announced that he will stand as an All People’s Party MP candidate for Camberwell and Peckham in 2015.
Mr Goyal, together with with some local community champions, set up a new political party in Southwark, All People’s Party (APP) this year, to give leadership opportunities in politics for all people now.
Mr Goyal said:
“After over 30 years of the same politician representing the constituency, Camberwell and Peckham’s leadership is crying out for an innovative and fresh perspective that is relevant and addresses the needs of one of the most ethnically diverse areas in London.
The people of Camberwell and Peckham are telling me every minute that the current political representation is out of touch with them and doesn’t build relationships with the whole community: in short, their votes have been taken for granted. ”
Mr Goyal said that if he won the 2015 election, he would only be an MP for a maximum two terms to ensure there are always new ideas and fresh perspectives in the constituency so as many people as possible can get leadership opportunities at the top and make a significant difference.
“If I win in 2015, I will live in the constituency and ensure that people hired in my offices will not only reflect the diversity of the constituency but also have deep roots in the Camberwell and Peckham community. I’ll never wear a bullet proof vest in my community. I’ll care for my whole community by embracing all cultures, including English, African and Caribbean, and tap the talent of 100% of our community.
My priorities are to ensure Camberwell and Peckham has decent homes and jobs for all, fighting for an overstayers amnesty, saying NO to stop and search and building business bridges between Southwark and emerging markets.”
