Chairmans statement regarding Sir Nicholas Soames MP

Charles Worsley, Mid Sussex Association Chairman.

Following the vote yesterday, it has been confirmed that our MP Sir Nicholas Soames has had the whip withdrawn and he has stated that he will not be seeking re-election.

Sir Nicholas has served Mid Sussex diligently since 1997, and has been a Member of Parliament since 1983. He has had the support of his Association during this time.

His hard work and dedication to public life has been greatly appreciated by all those who have worked with him and he will be greatly missed.

Sir Nicholas had previously intimated that he would not wish to stand in 2022 General Election.

The Association has now started the process to select a new candidate for Mid Sussex.

We wish Sir Nicholas and his family well for the future.
