High Peak MP Andrew Bingham has confirmed he will defend his seat in the general election on Thursday June 8.
Mr Bingham was formally re-selected as the Conservative's candidate during a local party meeting last night (Thursday).
The announcement comes just three days after Theresa May announced her decision to call a snap general election for June 8.
Mr Bingham said: “I am delighted to have been re-selected as the Conservative candidate. In the seven years I have been the MP, I have held over 300 surgeries, met with thousands of people, and dozens of organisations. It has been a huge privilege to serve as the Member of Parliament, and one which I very much hope I am re-elected to do.
“On June 8, the country faces a choice. There are only two people with a realistic chance of becoming Prime Minister – Theresa May or Jeremy Corbyn. A Conservative vote will help to secure the strong, stable leadership of Theresa May.
"Any other vote could result in the disorganised, confused chaos of a Jeremy Corbyn premiership.”
Mr Bingham held his seat at the 2015 general election with an increased majority, beating Labour's Caitlin Bisknell by nearly 5,000 votes.
