Professor Sharma said: "I am extremely happy to be selected as the Prospective Parliamentary Candidate for South West Bedfordshire.
"I have many friends and family in the area and am well aware of the problems facing South West Bedfordshire.
"In this time of international economic turbulence it is essential that the local area has a candidate that supports the decisive leadership of Gordon Brown and the Labour Government and can voice the opinions of the local electorate at the highest levels."
