“I first met Zaeba when she was on the Youth Committee of Labour’s sister party, the Co-operative Party. She is an intelligent, determined young woman with the energy, ideas and commitment Labour needs more than ever. Zaeba would be a great Labour candidate for Stoke-on-Trent North and Kidsgrove and she deserves your support.”

“I am pleased to give a personal endorsement to Zaeba Hanif and to support her application to stand as the Labour Party Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for Stoke-on-Trent North and Kidsgrove Constituency. I have previously worked alongside Zaeba and have been impressed with her passion and commitment to socialist values. Zaeba is a team player, her energy and dedication are a great strength. She is trustworthy, reliable, thoughtful and hardworking and a very effective champion of people. When asked how I would describe Zaeba, my reply is that she is a compassionate, caring democratic socialist. For a PPC we should insist on a candidate with the ability to demand change, to demand the needs of the area be addressed, to put forward our case – coherently, passionately and with conviction. Stoke-on-Trent North and Kidsgrove deserves an MP who has taken the time to understand Labour ethos and the workings of the party, someone who has seen how local and national politics works, someone who has taken the time to stand their ground on issues pertinent to the Labour cause – that candidate is Zaeba.”

“Zaeba’s has always shown great kindness and encouragement to myself and I am sure many other members of the Labour Party, Zaeba has a wealth of experience of representing and working to improve the lives of the most vulnerable in our society really shine through. I feel that as a Labour Party, as these are the people whom we most wish to protect, we need more people with Zaeba’s expertise in parliament, to strengthen our role. Finally, Zaeba’s has a passion for improving Stoke-on-Trent and the surrounding area that really shines through. This, combined with her ability to empathise with people will help her to create a narrative that chimes with local people, because she understands and shares these experiences: something which I believe is often underrated.”
