Fiona Onasanya, a British-Nigerian becomes first MP to sacked from Parliament by voters

Fiona Onasanya, a British politician of Nigerian descent, has lost her seat in the House of Commons after a recall petition.

The 35-year-old, who was a former Labour MP (member of parliament), was jailed after lying to officers to avoid a speeding ticket.

This made her the first female MP to be jailed and caused her to be kicked out of the Labour Party as almost 20,000 registered voters in her Peterborough constituency signed a recall petition demanding her removal.

She is the first MP ever to be removed by the recall process, introduced by David Cameron in 2015.

The successful petition now triggers a by-election in the Peterborough constituency, in which Onasanya is permitted to stand as an independent, Metro UK reports.
