Who is Chuka Umunna? Chuka Umunna joins the race for Labour Leadership

"Chuka Umunna has long been a bookies favourite for future Labour leadership contests and has been described as 'the British Obama' because he's seen as the most likely person to be Britain's first ethnic minority Minister"

Chuka Umunna has announced he will join the race to be Labour's leader. He said he believed Labour could win power in five years time. "I think the Labour party can do it in five years , i want to lead that effort"
He's very Business friendly.

According to Metro UK, Umunna was brought up in London, the child of a mixed-race couple. A lawyer by profession, he is seen as a smooth and accomplished media performer-possibly too smooth for some who warn he will struggle to win back traditional Labour voters in northern England where the party is under pressure from UKIP.

He is currently the shadow Business Secretary and has talked more of about the importance of enterprise and aspiration. He is known for his savile Row suits- a taste he says he acquired from his Nigerian businessman father.
