Labour select Alison McGovern to fight Wirral South
LABOUR have selected a candidate to fight the Wirral South seat which is being vacated by Ben Chapman.
Alison McGovern, 28, and deputy Labour leader in the London Borough of Southwark, who grew up in Bromborough has been selected from an all women shortlist.
She is currently the public affairs manager for the charity Creativity Culture & Education (CCE).
The seat is a key target for the Conservatives, who selected barrister Jeff Clarke in an open primary in January 2007.
Jamie Saddler will be running for the Liberal Democrats.
