STROUD MP Neil Carmichael has been reselected to defend his seat at the 2015 General Election.

On Monday night he was officially readopted by the Stroud Conservative party constituency executive to try and win a second term.

Next year he will defend a majority of 1,299 votes over Labour’s candidate David Drew, who lost his seat to Mr Carmichael in 2010 after serving three terms as Stroud’s MP.

Mr Carmichael told the Gazette he was very pleased and was looking forward to helping with the Conservative campaigning in the Stroud district elections in May this year.

Mr Drew has already been reselected to stand in 2015 and the UK Independence Party has chosen Caroline Stephens to also stand for the Stroud seat.
