My husband and I bumped into friends today and heard the devastating news that Cllr Obaid Khan will not be able to stand as a Labour Councillor in the forthcoming elections in May next year.  The reasons could honestly be political but natural justice and fairness would allow him a right of appeal.

What concerns me most is that, as a very active Newham constituent, I am shocked to hear this.  Cllr Obaid Khan has been an exceptionally dedicated Councillor; an active Councillor in Boleyn Ward and it is because of his support, the building in which we reside and the area in which we live have seen significant change and progress.  We, together with the residents and constituents he has supported over the past few years, have benefitted tremendously through his work ethics.

I am writing to request Jeremy Corbyn for his personal intervention that can an independent lawyer please review Cllr Obaid Khan's case which will possibly give him the opportunity to stand again as a Labour Councillor, for we would not be able to continue to enjoy the working and professional relationship.

Please sign this petition and help us enable Cllr Obaid Khan stand for another term in office.

Thank you.
