Indian-origin MP Keith Vaz re-elected as Home Affairs Select Committee Chair
In the election, Vaz was challenged for the position by his Labour party colleague and former Home Office minister Fiona McTaggert.
In his application, Vaz said that he is a "genuine and passionate believer in the scrutinising role of Parliament", a role that is predicated on detailed and fair scrutiny of the executive.
