Christopher Michael Leslie is a British Labour Co-operative politician. He has been the Member of Parliament for Nottingham East since 2010. In 2015, between May and September, he served as Shadow Chancellor of the Exchequer in the shadow cabinet of acting Labour leader Harriet Harman.
Change UK has applied to the Electoral Commission to change its name following a dispute with the petitions website Change. org.
It says Change. org is threatening to sue its MPs unless The Party alters its name by 15 June.
In a statement, The Party said it had agreed not to use the name permanently before May's European elections after The Threat of personal legal action against its MPs, as it had "no time left to register a New Party name".
It said it had since asked Change. org for more time to find a solution, but the website insisted The Party must choose a new name "without delay".
It lost lost six of its 11 MPs earlier this month following a disappointing performance in the EU elections, when it failed to get a single MEP elected.
