UK: Exclusive: Record 24 Muslim MPs expected to be elected this week

A breakdown of Prospective Parliamentary Candidates registered in the 2019 General Election sows that the total number of Muslims has gone up to no less than 72, up from 47 in 2017 and seven more than in 2015.

Hawzah News Agency - (London - UK) - The number of Muslim MPs expected to be elected to Parliament this week could rise to another record of 24, according to exclusive analysis of candidates and constituencies carried out by The Muslim News.

A breakdown of Prospective Parliamentary Candidates registered in the 2019 General Election sows that the total number of Muslims has gone up to no less than 72, up from 47 in 2017 and seven more than in 2015.

Out of 33 representing Labour, the analysis based upon the highest winning chance in specific seats, predicts that just under half, 16, are most likely to be successful, four more than in the previous year.

In 2017, three Muslim Conservatives were elected, all holding their seats won in 2015. But this number is expected to double to six, based upon the meticulous research. This is from a total of 22 Muslims standings.

For the first time, the Liberal Democrats look fairly sure of having their first Muslim MPs, with two expected to be elected from a total of 17 putting themselves forward as prospective parliamentary candidates from the party.
