A POLITICIAN said she was "delighted" after her party picked her once again to represent them in electoral battle.

Physics teacher Layla Moran yesterday announced she will once again be the Liberal Democrat parliamentary in Oxford West and Abingdon, and pledged to fight against the Brexit despite the referendum result.

She said: "I am delighted to have been reselected once more to fight for the communities. At a time when politics is so precarious and divisive, it has never been more important to have a strong voice for liberalism and for the Britain I believe in: one that is peaceful, tolerant and stands strong in the wider world.

"Local residents know that leaving the EU would harm local businesses and educational establishments as well as diminish our standing on the world stage.

"If elected I would represent the will of local electors and reject invoking Article 50. A wafer-thin majority on a decision of this magnitude should not trump common sense and decency. Liberal Democrats will fight this across the country."

The North Oxford resident, who campaigned against the decision to leave the EU, came second in last year's election after being beaten by the area's Conservative MP Nicola Blackwood.

The Liberal Democrat party is currently selecting candidates for the party’s top seats in case there is a snap election.
