For Britain is to stand a candidate in the Tiverton and Honiton by-election.
The by-election was called following the resignation of MP Neil Parish on 4 May when he admitted to viewing pornography on his mobile phone in the House of Commons chamber.
The election will be held on June 23rd.
For Britain’s candidate is Frankie Rufolo, who has stood for election several times in the region and whose vote share has continued to climb.
Frankie said “I couldn’t be more proud to be the For Britain candidate for Tiverton and Honiton. I have friends and family in the constituency embarrassed by Neil Parish, so voters can know I have a personal connection to the area. I’ve travelled all over the South West, working for different charities and now I fight for good causes through my politics.”
For Leader Anne Marie Waters said “Frankie works so hard for our party and our country and he deserves this wonderful opportunity. I know how passionate he is and I know he will work hard in this campaign. I wish him all the luck in the world.”
