Newham Conservatives have selected Sk Zakir Hossain as our candidate for the East Ham Central by-election on 6th May 2021.
Zakir has lived in East Ham for 6 years with his family. He is an active member of the local community and has served as an elected school governor since 2017. As a father of two young children, Zakir is passionate about education and giving children the confidence and skills they will need to develop as they grow. As a self-employed businessman, Zakir knows the value of education and how the skills he learned growing up helped him succeed in business.
Newham's children have great determination and passion to learn. This is down to the determination of parents and schoolteachers. I want to build on that. I want to drive forward extra-curricular learning opportunities and skills training by working with local businesses, government and the local community to build a stronger, safer society through education.
