Though the battle to be the next mayor of London dominates discussion ahead of the May 6 local elections, assembly seats are also up for grabs.
In the Camden and Barnet seat, which has been held by the retiring ex-MP Andrew Dismore since 2012, two Barnet councillors are likely to lead the fight.
Cllr Anne Clarke (Childs Hill) is the Labour candidate, while Cllr Roberto Weedon-Sanz (Brunswick Park) will be looking to turn the area Conservative again. The seat was held by Tory Brian Coleman between 2000 and 2012.
Also standing are Marisha Ray for the Lib Dems and, for the Greens is former Highgate Society chair Kirsten de Keyser.
The renamed Brexit Party - now known as Reform UK - is putting Mark Simpson forward for the seat.
