43-year-old Indian-origin British MP Seema Malhotra has been selected as the shadow chief secretary for Treasury by the recently elected Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn.
She was new task of shadow minister for preventing violence against women and girls in August 2014.
Seema Malhotra became MP for the London seat of Feltham and Heston in 2011 in a by-election following the death of Alan Keen.
On Sunday Extreme left-wing MP Jeremy Corbyn was elected leader of Britain’s main Opposition Labour Party in a landslide victory in London.
Mr Corbyn’s victory marks a deep change in British politics with the far Left gaining control of a party that had defined itself as “New Labour” for years, having moved more towards the political centre ground, marking a departure from strong links with the country’s trade unions.
The result has also sparked talk of a deep split within the Labour party that was thrown into turmoil by David Cameron’s shock May election win.
