A London pharmacist has won the general election from Coventry.

Standing as a candidate for the Labour Party, Taiwo Owatemi won the Coventry North West seat in a closely fought election.

The 27-year old pharmacist from Greenwich in London received 20,918 votes, just 208 more than her nearest Conservative Party rival, Clare Golby, who got 20,710 votes, in what was considered a safe seat for Labour.

The Pharmacists’ Defence Association (PDA) congratulated the newly elected MP for Coventry North West for her election victory via a tweet this morning:

Owatemi had won her party’s nomination as candidate for Coventry North West in a tightly fought battle beating her nearest rival 65-60.
