Thomas Chan (Conservatives - Redbridge)
Edmond Yeo (Conservatives - Ealing)
Ms Mia Jones (Lib dem - Chester)
Mr Sam Li (Lib Dem - Lewes)
Stephen Shing (Independent - District Council, Willingdon)
Daniel Shing (Independent - Wealden District Council, Willingdon)
Mrs Oi Ling Shing (Independent - Wealden District Council, Polegate North)

Well done Linda!

Under Participation, the BC Project aims to support any ethnic Chinese, British citizen who wishes to stand as a candidate for any recognised political parties in UK; both at local council level or as a Member of Parliament.

Our aim is to help all you potential councillors and MPs to represent your voters in your chosen area.

We are delighted to support Dr Teck Khong, an eminent medical professional and long-standing active member of the Conservative Party, in his quest to become a Tory candidate.

Dr Khong has shown that he is not only committed to his patients but, like us, also cares about the country that he has adopted as home. 

Being Chinese and humbled with the position of representing potentially not just a constituency, but also a large portion of the British Chinese community, it would be an honour for us all to have Dr Khong elected as the first MP of Chinese ethnicity.

With his migrant background, multi-cultural experiences and his professional positions that he holds in the modern British society, Dr Khong offers diversity and professionalism which we feel would appeal to voters of all backgrounds.

You will find some of his recent essays which he shared his reasons to selflessly stand to become a candidate, with an aim to enter Westminster and represent our perspective.
