Afriyie, Adam

Adam Afriyie was elected as the MP for Windsor in 2005.  He was reelected in 2019 with a majority of 20,079 votes..

Adam joined the Conservative Party in 1990, and during his career as a politician campaigned for Jeffrey Archer – when he attempted to be elected as Mayor of London in 1999.  He, was a member of the Science and Technological select committee and of the Children, Schools and Families select committee, and was appointed as President of the Conservative Technology Forum.

Having served as a Shadow Science Minister between 2005 and 2010, Afriyie was overlooked for Ministerial office when the Conservatives entered into coalition with the Liberal Democrats in 2010.   He came to prominence later in that Parliament as a potential stalking horse to challenge David Cameron, in a move that never generated much momentum.

Adam voted against the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill in 2013 and the Equal Pay (Transparency) Bill in 2014.

Born in 1965 from an English mother and a Ghanaian father, he was the first Conservative mixed-race MP, even though he defines himself not as black but as “post-racial”.
