Tory MP steps down just two years after he was elected despite pledging to stand again

28 Apr

David Mackintosh, who was first elected as Northampton South MP in 2015, said it had been “an honour” to serve the constituency.

In a statement on Twitter, he said: “It has been an honour and privilege but I have decided not to seek re-election as an MP but wish @theresa_may the best of luck on 8th June.”

Earlier this month, he welcomed the Prime Minister’s announcement of a snap poll and set out his ambition to continue in the role.
