Sussex student to work shadow MP
Ansumana Marrow, a final year economics student at the University of Sussex, will work shadow an MP as part of a scheme organised by Operation Black Vote and the Commission for Racial Equality launched today.
Twenty-five black and ethnic minority individuals were selected to shadow Members of Parliament from the three main political parties, and the Scottish National Party and Plaid Cymru.
Over a six-month period they will assist politicians with their daily work, gain valuable experience of parliamentary politics both at Westminster and in the local constituency and also receive four one-day training sessions, gaining invaluable insights from distinguished political activists and public figures.
Ansumana will work shadow Margaret Moran, who is Labour MP for Luton South, and will spend two days per month working with her.
