Labour’s new general secretary will help restore trust with voters

That’s according to the Labour Leader, Sir Kier Starmer

Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer has said the party’s new general secretary will help restore “trust” with the British people.

David Evans, who worked for Labour under the leadership of Tony Blair, and was seen as the favourite of Sir Keir, was backed for the role by the party’s ruling National Executive Committee (NEC) on Tuesday.

Sir Keir said: “I look forward to working with David to build a team that can help us restore trust with the British people and build a team that can win the next election.”

Former assistant general secretary Mr Evans said: “We face a defining period in the history of our great party, with a global pandemic, an imminent recession and a mountain to climb to win the next election.”
