Eastbourne MP Caroline Ansell has decided to support Theresa May in the forthcoming Conservative leadership contest.
Mrs Ansell said, “In these challenging times, I firmly believe she has the experience and credibility to be an excellent Prime Minister. Her authority is unmatched and as such she will command the respect of the House of Commons and the confidence of the public.
“She has been a tough Home Secretary for the last six years and done an extremely good job keeping this country safe from numerous terrorist threats in that time, and this is no mean feat.
“This toughness and her sharp eye for detail will be much needed skills as this country negotiates with the EU and I can think of no-one better to do this vitally important job and do it well.”
Theresa May was born in Eastbourne.
