Bangla Mirror Desk :: Last Sunday at its AGM, Welwyn Hatfield Labour Party members voted for its candidate to contest the 2015 General Election.

Following a hustling where candidates were grilled by local party members, a vote was held and Anawar Miah was selected as the prospective parliamentary candidate.

Anawar said, “I am proud to have been selected by the party to be their candidate. It is an honour and a privilege to stand up for local residents and I hope to be able to take their voice into parliament.

Mr Miah lives in Hatfield with his young family and was selected following a process that began back in January.

Labour Council Group Leader Kieran Thorpe said “I’m delighted the party has selected Anawar. I’m sure he will be a fantastic representative for all of Welwyn Hatfield and I look forward to working with him."

The new candidate has promised to hit the ground running saying “the fight begins now, I intend to get out there and meet as many residents and local organisations as possible before the general election, its vital that we show people there is an alternative to the failed policies of the Coalition government that have hit Welwyn Hatfield hard.”

Anawar Miah was called to the Bar by the Honourable Society of Lincoln's Inn in1998. Anawar is the President of the British Bangladeshi Practicing Barristers Association and he practices law from Great James Street Chamber near Chancery Lane in Central London. Anawar's chambers are listed in the Legal 500 directory of 'Who's Who in the Law', and he has been involved in many high profile legal cases.

Anawar is regarded as a leading Barrister and an expert on complex financial arrangements and contentious litigation. Anawar acts for blue chip companies and high net worth individuals advocating in trials which are noteworthy.

Anawar is regularly invited to give lectures and seminars throughout the UK. Anawar's wife is also a Barrister and she runs her own law firm.

Welwyn Hatfield is a wonderfully diverse community but he knows that people there face many challenges. Anawar has lived in Welwyn Hatfield since 2005 with his family. Anawar believes it's a great place to live with great people. But Anawar believes that the work to be done is also great. If he enters Parliament he would work hard for all those in Welwyn Hatfield.

Anawar says he wants to see a Welwyn Hatfield where every child can dream a valid dream, where every pensioner can lead a dignified life. Anawar wants to see happy homes, healthy families and hopeful futures in Welwyn Hatfield.

Anawar Miah would work hard for children, to ensure that they have access to the education that they need and the future that they deserve. For parents, too many of whom are having to tighten their belts to make ends meet as a result of the Tories myopic, short term plaster solution to the economy. For the elderly who should be able to retire with dignity, financial security and a health service that will put their well-being first before statistics. For the disabled who need that extra bedroom space in their homes without being taxed for it. For the poor, the vulnerable, the sick, the mentally impaired. And for those of us who have the ability to work. Anawar Miah would work hard for when they are out of work, underemployed or have had to give up looking for work.
Anawars work depends on the vital efforts and prayers of everyone to ensure a brighter future for Welwyn Hatfield, for families, friends and neighbours.
