HENLEAZE councillor Clare Campion-Smith says it is "huge honour" to be chosen as Liberal Democrat candidate for Bristol North West in next year's general election.
The councillor, who has represented Henleaze since 2006, was selected as the prospective parliamentary candidate at a recent meeting in Sea Mills. She will be taking on sitting Conservative MP Charlotte Leslie.
Campion-Smith was re-elected as councillor earlier on this year, beating her nearest rival by over 500 votes.
She said: “I am proud and excited to have been chosen as the Liberal Democrat candidate for Bristol North West. For the first time in generations, my party will be campaigning on our record in government.
"It is a huge honour to be selected, and I can’t wait to meet more people across the area over the coming weeks and months."
The general election will take place in May 2015. In 2010 the Liberal Democrats came second in the seat, gaining 31.5% of the vote.
