On the 3rd May 2018 Portsmouth Labour more than doubled its council group from two to five, with a 12% swing to Labour across the city. Returning new councillors to Fratton – Tom Coles, Central Southsea – George Fielding and the first ever Labour councillor for St Jude – Judith Smyth.
On 8th June here in Portsmouth, we had a fantastic victory with Stephen Morgan MP winning in Portsmouth South – a truly historic achievement as this was the first time a Labour MP had been elected for 100 years!
In Portsmouth North, Rumal Khan increased the Labour vote by 9.9% – above the national average.
It’s very likely that we’ll be called on for yet another general election within the next year, and if not, we have the local council elections coming up again in May 2019. Our ambition is to build on our success and win enough Labour council seats to really make a difference in our city of Portsmouth.
