Fierce political battle between Labour's Andrew Dismore and Conservative Matthew Offord looms with Hendon election candidates set to be named
Two rival politicians with a public dislike for one another look set to battle it out for a seat in parliament for the second election running.
Andrew Dismore has been named in a two-candidate shortlist of politicians who will contest the Hendon constituency for the Labour Party at the 2014 general election.
The GLA member for Barnet and Camden lost the seat to Conservative Matthew Offord in 2010.
Mr Offord recently claimed the Labour incumbent had run a “dirty campaign” at the previous election, while Mr Dismore admitted he has “unfinished business” after losing the seat.
The Hendon Labour Party will meet on Sunday at Broadfields School in Edgware to vote for their candidate in the election race.
Mr Dismore is up against Cate Tuitt, a former councillor in Tower Hamlets, and must achieve a majority among the 350 members expected at the meeting.
Mr Offord has not officially been re-selected to contest his seat but party insiders say it is “very likely”.
