The UK will go to the polls next month for the first December general election in nearly a century.

The government has announced the election will take place on December 12, with prime minister Boris Johnson looking for the Conservative party to achieve a parliamentary majority.

Parties have until 4pm on Thursday November 14 to formally announce who is running, and we already have an idea of who will be contesting some of the seats in the Portsmouth area.

Conservative MP Penny Mordaunt will be looking to keep her seat in Portsmouth North, while in Portsmouth South Labour MP Stephen Morgan will face competition from city council leader Gerald Vernon-Jackson, for the Liberal Democrats, and leader of Portsmouth Conservatives Donna Jones.

Brexit Party leader Nigel Farage has announced that his party will not stand in seats won by the Conservatives in 2017, while the Liberal Democrats and Green Party have also made a Remain alliance pact in some seats.

Here is the list of candidates for each of our local constituencies so far as of November 14 – we will keep this page updated so make sure you come back for the latest information.
