Surrey journalist Harpreet Singh hopes to square off against New Democrat MP Jinny Sims and Liberal candidate Sukh Dhaliwal in this year’s federal election as the Conservative candidate for the new riding of Surrey Newton.
The Conservatives’ nomination meeting is expected to be held in mid-February, with a location yet to be announced.
“I feel strongly that the time has come to cross the line and enter federal politics to serve the community,” Singh said. “I feel that I owe it to the residents of this great city that their voices are heard in our nation’s capital.”
Singh has worked as a television and radio host, political commentator, writer and producer.
If he wins the Tory nod, Singh’s general election rivals will be former Surrey Liberal MP Sukh Dhaliwal and current New Democrat MP Jinny Sims.
