On 4 April 2020 Sir Keir Starmer was elected as the new leader of the Labour Party.
Rushanara Ali MP said:
"I have been proud to support and campaign for Keir Starmer during the Labour leadership contest. I'm looking forward to working with Keir and the wider Labour movement to unite, rebuild and re-energise our movement.
We desperately need a Labour government. More than ever, the coronavirus pandemic has shown the huge gaps in our healthcare and social welfare system after a decade of Tory austerity. We need to protect our public services, support our communities and our economy through this crisis and beyond."
