Manchester  Evening News reports, “North west MEP Afzal Khan has been selected to fight the Gorton by-election for Labour. A drawn-out selection meeting – that saw him pitted against Momentum-backed Yasmine Dar in the final round – eventually saw Mr Khan chosen to stand in the bitterly contested seat, made vacant by the death of veteran MP Sir Gerald Kaufman last month. He said he was ‘delighted’ to be selected, promising to always be a strong voice for the people of Gorton. “Tory cuts have gone too far,” he added. “Older people, those needing support for mental health, disabilities and learning difficulties, and those affected by homelessness, alcohol and drugs, are being hit by drastic funding cuts driven through by Theresa May’s heartless government. “Manchester is a world class city, and we can make it even better. I will always speak up for Manchester and stand up for hardworking families here”.  click here.
