Javid wins safe Tory seat nomination

Congratulations to Sajid Javid, who won the contest to be Conservative candidate for Bromsgrove, a safe seat.

The 40-year-old businessman is now set to be the Tories first Muslim MP, after he was picked to replace MP Julie Kirkbride, who stood down over the expenses scandal.

Baroness Sayeeda Warsi was elevated to the Tory front bench last year, and is expected to be a leading minister should David Cameron enter Downing Street in May.

Javid scooped 70% of the votes from local Conservative members in the final round. He lists human rights as one of his interests, and is tipped to go far in Westminster.

He helped run the Conservative Association at Exeter University before getting involved in the party in Lewisham East. More recently he narrowly missed out in the Orpington selection.
