Candidate for

Erith and Thamesmead

Abena Oppong-Asare

Sitting MP

Abena Oppong-Asare

Personal Statement

I live right here in Erith and Thamesmead - it’s where my family and friends live and it’s where my roots are. I have always fought for better housing, health services, and delivered better transport links.
This chaos and incompetence of this Conservative Government has been a disaster for local people. They crashed our economy and then made you and your loved ones pay the price. Wages are down, household bills and taxes are up, and they’ve ripped the heart out of our public services.
We cannot accept that our great country and our community should simply fall into managed decline. We can fix the mess the Tories have created: save our NHS; invest in our public services; and put the pride back in our communities again.
I have been proud to serve this constituency since 2019. I’m ambitious for our community and I’m determined to work with local people to build a brighter, more sustainable future. 
It’s time for change – that can only come with the election of a Labour government.
