elyn MP David Hanson has today welcomed the election of Ed Miliband MP as Labour Party Leader and believes the party needs to rally round him in order to tackle the coalition and win re-election at the next General Election.
David Hanson said:
“The campaign for Labour Leadership has been an extremely positive one and it has allowed us, as a party, to reflect on our electoral defeat in May and begin to build a positive agenda for the country going forward.
“I believe that the candidates conducted themselves in the right manner during the campaign and despite backing David Miliband MP for leader I am delighted for Ed. I know that he will be an excellent Leader of both of the party and hopefully of the country as a future Prime Minister.
“What’s important now is that the party as a whole falls behind the new leader as we fight the devastating cuts agenda of the Tory-led coalition in Parliament and across the UK.”
