Candidate for Executive Mayor of Tower Hamlets on the 3rd May
Dr Anwara Ali MBE
Dr Anwara Ali is a married mum, businesswoman, former Councillor, local GP and a well-known community figure in Tower Hamlets.
Anwara has lived in our borough for over 45 years and has been educated from nursery all the way through to medical school here.
She has always had a keen interest in politics and has been actively involved from a young age. One of her earliest memories is delivering leaflets in the 70`s to campaign against the fascists in East London who used to throws eggs at her and her Mum on the way to school.
She has worked with 2 of the fastest growing businesses in the world, Lycamobile and Channel i. Both of these businesses are based in East London.
She is responsible for 2 large public bodies in receipt of more than £3M of public funding. Together, these organisations deliver health services to over 50,000 Tower Hamlets residents.
In the 2018 New Year’s Honours list she was awarded an MBE for services to Community Healthcare and was also very recently given a British Community Honours Award.
She is the 1st pupil from Mulberry School to become a Doctor and the 2nd Tower Hamlets GP since 1945 to receive an MBE.
She put myself forward because she has experienced first-hand Labour failing the people of Tower Hamlets for the past 50 years. As a GP she struggles daily to obtain Council Services for her patients. The current Mayoral administration’s poor record on housing and crime also concerns her greatly.
Her deep-rooted local connections in Tower Hamlets give her a personal commitment to improving the quality of life for residents. She has lived through the periods of our borough having appalling services, as well as the endemic political corruption and divide and rule politics that have been used to pitch our communities against another.
In this the centenary year of women getting the Right to Vote, the fine electorate of Tower Hamlets has the opportunity to make history on 3rd May 2018.
Residents can choose a local married mum, who is a former Councillor and jobbing GP as their Mayor.
In the words of the ground-breaking Suffragettes, what our borough needs is Deeds Not Words!
