THREE candidates vying to be elected in the general election have set out their stall.

Suella Fernandes is set to stand again for the Conservatives in Fareham.

Matthew Winnington, a Portsmouth city councillor, will challenge her for the Lib Dems and Miles Grindley is representing the Green Party.

Miss Fernandes said: ‘It is a real privilege to represent the people of Fareham, so I am delighted to have been re-selected by Fareham Conservative Association for the general election. I will be spending the next few weeks putting across a positive message about my record as a local MP and what I want to do moving forward.’

She added: ‘I want to make a success of Brexit.’

Cllr Winnington said: ‘The plan for us is to show that the Lib Dems are the real only alternative to the Tories in Fareham. I want to provide a voice for the public.’

Mr Grindley said: ‘There are many issues across the area that is being ignored by the Tories. Fareham is a beautiful place with a tremendous character.’
