I am so excited and truly honoured to announce I'll be the lead candidate for the Green Party in the upcoming EU Elections for Yorkshire & Humber.

Politics must change and if there’s anything we’ve learnt in this current political climate is that, we must have the courage to do politics differently - people don’t want more of the same and the Green Party can deliver that change for Yorkshire and Humber, having so narrowly missed out on a European seat last time.

Remaining in Europe is crucial to us all, but particularly young people. They should have the right to freely move across 27 other European countries, to study, to work, to fall in love, to experience life and have their lives enriched by people from other EU countries working in their schools, colleges and universities and living in our communities.

As a loud and proud working-class black Muslim refugee millennial, I know I may not be the usual politician, I get that. But our region deserves a representative who will boldly act on the issues that matter to us such as climate emergency and tackle the poverty, inequality and discrimination sadly rife in our communities.

This is an exciting opportunity. We have a real chance to change the status quo and improve our lives. As Lord Mayor, I’ve been able to engage people and spaces other politicians haven’t been able to reach, while being an authentic ambassador for our region around the UK and the rest of Europe. I will shake things up, stand up to hate and champion a vision of hope.

I will LOUDLY and PROUDLY campaign:

- For Climate Action

- For Immigration

- For Antiracism

- For Equality

- For People’s Vote

Love and thanks to everyone who voted for me to be the lead candidate.

Now let's all #ChooseHope together.
