For the past ten years, the sitting MP John Bercow has been the Speaker of the House of Commons so tradition has dictated that the Labour Party and Liberal Democrats have not fielded candidates.

This year there are six candidates contesting the seat and they are as follows:

> Andrew Bell (Brexit Party) - home address in the Chelsea and Fulham constituency

> Stephen Dorrell (Liberal Democrat Party) - home address in the City of London and Westminster constituency

> David Morgan (Labour Party) - home address in Milton Keynes

> Greg Smith (Conservative Party) - home address in Wendover

> Ned Stephen Thompson (Independent) - home address in Buckingham

> Antonio Vitiello (English Democrats - Putting England First) - home address in the South West Bedfordshire constituency

There are three forthcoming hustings events across the area where constituents will have the chance to put questions to candidates:

Monday November 25 - St Laurence's Church, Winslow - 8pm

Wednesday November 27 - University of Buckingham's Vinson Building - 7pm

Wednesday December 4 - Haddenham Community Junior School - time TBC
