Asian vote key to No10

According to a poll by the BBC Asian Network only four in every ten Asians are expected to go to the polls on May 6th.

This is cause for concern to all three parties as many of the two way three way marginal seats that need to be won by one party to gain an overall majority or form a coalition in the event of a hung parliament have significant Asian populations. Marginal seats like Bethnal Green and Bow; Bradford West; Kingston and Surbiton; Birmingham Edgbaston, Luton South, and Watford mean a registered and voting electorate could be the deciding factor and turn the election on a sixpence.

The general consensus seems to be that the Asian community is already registered for tomorrow’s deadline. The challenge facing the parties is to get them to the polling stations. ┬áIt could make all the difference between a hung parliament or a one party overall majority.
