Labour parliamentary candidate for Uxbridge and South Ruislip Ali Milani was seen arriving at his polling station in London on Thursday, to cast his vote in the UK general election.
Milani, a 25-year-old who came to the United Kingdom from Iran, pitches himself as the real local candidate and challenges British Prime Minister Boris Johnson in the same constituency.
“Boris Johnson hasn’t been here since the day he was elected, so… He has been campaigning a bit more today, in this election, but that’s because he feels under threat and so he should. So I’m exited to get out now and go, and do what he won’t do in this constituency and that’s actually campaign and speak to local residents.”Ali Milani
Polling stations opened at 0700 GMT in 650 constituencies across England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. Official results are expected to start coming in after polls close at 2200 GMT.
This is the third UK general election in less than five years. On October 29, the UK’s House of Commons voted 438 to 20 to approve Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s bill calling for an early general election on December 12.
