Raab holds on to seat with reduced majority

Rebecca Curley

Local Democracy Reporter

Conservative Dominic Raab held on to his seat in Esher and Walton but lost his massive majority.

Despite the Liberal Democrats making it a target seat for the party, the Foreign Secretary managed to hold on and win with 31,132 votes.

Monica Harding, the Liberal Democrats candidate, soaked up thousands of votes reducing his majority of 23,000 to just under 3,000.

She won 28,389 votes with Labour’s Peter Ashurst in third place with 2,838 – a massive loss for the party which came in second in 2017.

Esher & Walton: Conservative hold

Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab has been re-elected as the MP for Esher & Walton, with a significantly decreased majority.

The Conservative candidate beat Liberal Democrat Monica Harding by 2,743 votes, less than half the majority at the 2017 election.

Peter Ashurst of the Labour Party came third and independent candidate Kylie Keens came fourth.

Voter turnout was up by 3.8 percentage points since the last general election.

More than 63,000 people, roughly three-quarters of those eligible to vote, went to polling stations across the area on Thursday, in the first December general election since 1923.

Four of the six candidates, Peter Ashurst (Labour), Kylie Keens (independent), Baron Badger (Monster Raving Loony Party) and Kyle Taylor (Advance Together) lost their £500 deposits after failing to win 5% of the vote.

Media in wait for Foreign Secretary Dominic Raab

Adrian Harms

Reporter, BBC Sussex

There are plenty of media waiting for the Foreign Secretary to speak at the Esher count, while the body language of the Liberal Democrats suggests they haven’t done enough to take the seat.

However, they are confident Dominic Raab’s majority will be considerably less than the 23,000 he achieved in 2017.

Profile: Esher and Walton

Brexit is the most prominent issue in this election and could be decisive in this Conservative commuter belt seat.

In the 2016 referendum 58.4% of voters here wanted to remain.

Their MP is former Brexit secretary Dominic Raab, who quit that post in protest at Theresa May’s initial deal, saying it had “fatal flaws”.

Mr Raab, who is defending a majority of over 23,000, put himself forward as leader when Mrs May quit, and was subsequently made Foreign Secretary by Boris Johnson.
