Labour withdraws support for Rochdale candidate after Israel-Gaza remarks

  • Labour has withdrawn their support for Azhar Ali, their candidate in the Rochdale by-election, due to his controversial remarks about Israel.
  • Ali suggested that Israel allowed the Hamas attack on October 7 as a pretext to invade Gaza, sparking criticism. He subsequently apologized, but new information led to the withdrawal of Labour's backing.
  • Sir Keir Starmer, Labour leader, is under pressure to withdraw support for Ali and ensure he cannot take the Labour whip, in order to uphold the party's commitment against antisemitism.
