Police commissioner is backing Javid for PM

Rob George 13th Jun, 2019   0

WEST MERCIA Police and Crime Commissioner has lent his support to county MP Sajid Javid’s leadership campaign to become the next Prime Minister.

Mr Campion was speaking in the week Mr Javid was confirmed as one of ten candidates to go forward to the next stage of the competition – the first ballot today (Thursday).

He said: “As the Conservatives PCC for West Mercia I have seen first hand Sajid Javids’ vision, leadership and drive as Home Secretary and as a constituency MP in Bromsgrove.

“He not only has listened and understood the support our police service and his community need, he has worked hard to deliver it.

“The Conservative Party and the country needs a leader that will deliver Brexit, then get on with delivering vital public service reform and investment.

“Sajid Javid is the leader my party and our country needs, ensuring we boldly leave the European Union to a brighter future of a more prosperous and fairer society.”

Mr Javid has gained further support today from Ministers Caroline Nokes and Victoria Atkins, following the backing of Ruth Davidson – the leader of the Scottish Conservatives – who announced her support yesterday.

The other nine MPs who have gleaned enough support and had their names read out after the nominations closed were Jeremy Hunt, Dominic Raab, Matt Hancock, Michael Gove, Mark Harper, Andrea Leadsom, Esther McVey, Rory Stewart and front-runner Boris Johnson.
