The Liberal Democrats have selected their candidate to fight the Hendon constituency at the next general election.

Clareine Enderby previously stood for the party in the seat at 2019 general election, when she came third behind current MP Matthew Offord and Labour candidate David Pinto-Duschinsky.

Pinto-Duschinsky has also been selected to fight the seat again for Labour but both will face a new opponent this time around as Offord is stepping down and Ameet Jogia, a Harrow councillor and adviser to prime minister Rishi Sunak is running for the Conservatives.

Enderby came third in 2019 with 4,628 and 8.4% of the vote.

Given Labour’s big lead in national opinion polls and the growth in tactical voting – which has usually seen Labour and Liberal Democrat supporters back the candidate most likely to beat the Conservatives – at recent by-elections, it may be a challenge for Enderby to secure such a high vote at this year’s election.

The other candidates announced so far for the seat are Gabrielle Bailey for the Greens and David Sandground for Reform UK.
