Haseeb is a lawyer, and is particularly interested in regional economic policy, addressing income inequality and sustainable development. Haseeb has lived in Hackney for 15 years, and wants to focus on reversing the effects that austerity has had on the constituency. His priorities for the constituency are to improve housing, healthcare and working conditions. He supports a People's Vote, in which he and Renew would campaign hard to Remain.
Why choose to get active in politics now?
“Now more than ever, we must focus on creating strong ties with Europe and the rest of the world, we must look to our economic future, to the future of London as an important international city and for the future of the UK as a unified country. Brexit has been divisive and has stoked hatred between communities, generations and ethnicities and I will work to enhance our social cohesion and strength as a society.
“On a local level, now is the time to invest in Hackney and I intend to resolve the problems created by austerity that led up to the 2016 Referendum result. Hackney North and Stoke Newington deserves far better than being treated like a for-granted safe seat. I am committed to working on the issues facing the residents of Hackney North and Stoke Newington, particularly those related to employment, working conditions, housing and homelessness, social and community issues, health provision as well as sustainability and environmental improvement and protection. I would make sure that, representing Hackney, I would speak loudly for the overwhelming majority of people in Hackney who voted to Remain, supporting a second referendum and campaigning to stay in the EU.”
