William Houngbo

Candidate for Kensington and Bayswater

General Election - 4 July 2024

William was born in the Benin Republic and raised in France. He moved to the U.K. in 1997 to start a career in business, and is now an academic researching food insecurity in West Africa. He lives in London where he is raising his youngest daughter.

He joined the Liberal Democrats in 2010 and served as a local councilor for four years - as well as a vice chair and diversity lead of the London Liberal Democrats.

William believes that fostering strong communities is vital to improving quality of life - and has been one of the key trustees of Active Communities Network (ACN) since the pandemic. He is active in many residents’ associations and the Kensington Society, taking on casework for people in difficult situations.

That is why William’s top priorities in this campaign are to tackle the housing crisis and restore community policing for Kensington & Bayswater.

As well, because he passionately believes that the local and international are interdependent, William is pushing for Britain to fix its broken relationship with Europe to support the local and national economy.

Most of all, William wants to fight for a fair deal for Kensington & Bayswater that restores your trust that politics can solve the problems we face.

In his spare time William is an avid cyclist and runner, and has successfully completed both the New York City Marathon and the London Marathon - so he knows a thing or two about putting his head down and pushing forward!

William is the right candidate at the right time, offering Kensington & Chelsea a fresh start and a real alternative.
