Samir Jeraj - North East Constituency
Green Party Housing Spokesperson, Samir Jeraj, will be challenging for the Constituency seat of North East (which includes the whole of Hackney, Islington and Waltham Forest).
Samir is a journalist and housing campaigner. He works in race equality, particularly in health services, criminal justice and housing. He lives in Stamford Hill in Hackney.
“Hackney is a fantastic place to live and work, but rising rents and housingcosts risk making it a place where only the rich can live.”
The Green Party came third in 2012 with 29,677 votes, just behind the Conservative Party who secured 35,714. The Green Party is tipped to perform extremely well in next May’s London elections.
"The Greens already have two Assembly Members and we have a real chance to get even more people elected in May. The main focuses of my campaign will be to create decent, affordable and secure housing, working to make London a healthier city and tackling inequality. " Samir said.
