General Election 2024: Chingford & Woodford Green result


The Chingford & Woodford Green constituency will continue to be represented by the Conservative Party in parliament, with Sir Iain Duncan Smith re-elected as the MP.

Having held the seat since it was created in 1997, the former Tory leader increased his majority by 3,495 votes, although his share of the vote was down from 48.5% in 2019 to 35.6% in yesterday’s election.

“Working together, we’ve delivered on our shared priorities,” said Sir Iain Duncan Smith in a pre-election statement, citing the repair of Broadmead Road bridge as a local priority he will fight for.

Second and third place candidates were Labour’s Shama Tatler and the independent candidate Faiza Shaheen respectively, with just 79 votes separating them. Faiza Shaheen had previously been the Labour candidate, but was dropped by the party in the run-up to the election, causing a split in the Labour vote.

The Liberal Democrats received just 2.6% of the vote, down from 5.7% in 2029, leaving them in last place behind Reform and the Greens.
