A by-election has officially been called for Dollis Hill Ward in the London Borough of Brent following the death of Liberal Democrat Councillor Alec Castle. It will take place on Thursday March 22nd 2012.
Labour’s candidate for the Dollis Hill Ward by-election is Parvez Ahmed. Parvez lives in Dollis Hill Ward, has years of experience as a community activist and would make an excellent Council colleague at Brent Council.
In May 2010, the Liberal Democrats took all three Council seats in this Ward. Using the 2010 results, Labour needs a swing of 1.4% from the Liberal Democrats to Labour to win the seat.
