Daphne Bagshawe, the Chairman of Wealden Conservatives, said:
Congratulations to Nus.

The new constituencies come into operation in July this year when the new boundaries are officially announced in Parliament. The date of the next general election has not yet been announced, but has to be before called by December 2024.
