The general elections are expected to take place on May 6
12th March 2010: With the general elections just round the corner, Liberal Democrats is proposing to field as many as 40 ethnic candidates.
Chairman of the Britain’s third major party’s campaign committee Edward Davey says they will be fielding as many as 35 to 40 ethnic minority candidates, including Indian-origin candidates. The elections are expected to take place on May 6.
Deputy Leader of the party in the House of Lords, Lord Navnit Dholakia, says it is the ideal time for NRIs and other ethnic minorities to raise their concerns regarding immigration and other issues.
Edward believes the UK is apparently heading for a "balanced” or a hung Parliament and his party will have a key role to play after the poll.
