Dua Lipa has called on her fanbase to vote for the Labour party in the upcoming general election.
The ‘Don’t Start Now’ singer took to Instagram yesterday (December 2) to upload a policy breakdown designed by fashion and art outlet The Basement.
In the post, Labour’s stance on tackling issues such as mental health, equality, LGBT+, and climate change is compared to that of the Conservatives’. It states that these pledges will affect students and “younger people” in particular.
Addressing her 36.7m Instagram followers, most of whom are young fans, Lipa wrote in the caption: “Our democracy is strongest when everyone’s voice is heard. This is the most important election in a generation and YOUR vote counts.
“Your MP works for you so make sure you have your say about who deserves to represent you. See you at the ballot box 12th December!”
The star concluded with the hashtag #VoteLabour followed by the love heart emoji. See the post below.

This comes after Stormzy was praised by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn for urging his fans to register to vote, which saw a huge surge in registrations last week. “Thank you for helping bring about change to the lives of millions,” wrote Corbyn on Twitter.
The UK general election is set to take place on Thursday, December 12.
Dua Lipa, meanwhile, has announced a 2020 UK arena tour in support of her upcoming second album, ‘Future Nostalgia‘.
Describing the new record, the singer said: “What I wanted to do with this album was to break out of my comfort zone and challenge myself to make music that felt like it could sit alongside some of my favourite classic pop songs, whilst still feeling fresh and uniquely mine.”
