Labour has selected a candidate for next year’s general election.
Stuart Rose will vie for votes in Fareham as the party’s prospective parliamentary candidate.
A former Fareham borough councillor, Mr Rose has lived in the area for nearly 30 years.
He said: ‘Britain cannot afford another term of Tory-led politics of division between the very rich and the rest of us.
‘All families in Fareham deserve decent, well paid jobs to provide a good standard of income.’
Mr Rose added he supports the proposed development of the new town Welborne.
He will be up against the incumbent, Conservative former government minister Mark Hoban MP.
