British Asian politician Alok Sharma MP, the Prime Minister’s Special Infrastructure Envoy to India, announces his support to Theresa May to be the next leader of the Conservative Party and the next UK Prime Minister….reports Asian Lite News
Mr Sharma was delivering the keynote speech at the Confederation of British Industry’s (CBI) annual India banquet in London.
Alok said the country needs a strong and competent Prime Minister who is internationally respected and able to deliver the best deal for Britain in exit negotiations with the European Union.
He said Theresa May MP, who is the longest serving Home Secretary in more than a century, is the most experienced candidate in the leadership race and will prove to be an excellent Prime Minister.
“I believe serious times call for a serious candidate. Someone who is very experienced at the highest levels. Someone who is highly competent. Someone who will command respect on the international stage,” said Alok. “Of course we have very many fine and able people in the Conservative Party who will be putting themselves forward for the highest office. In my party people want to get onto the front bench, not get off it. I believe the candidate with the most experience, most able to unite our country and steer us through some very choppy waters is Theresa May, our Home Secretary.
“Theresa has very real experience from the private sector and fantastic experience at the very top of government. She will command respect from Delhi to Dublin, from Brussels to Beijing. And Theresa May will work tirelessly for our country, as she has done every day over the past six years as Home Secretary.”
