Who is Priti Patel’s Husband Alex Sawyer?
Alex Sawyer works as a marketing consultant for the American financial firm Nasdaq NLX.
Sawyer also serves on the council of the London Borough of Bexley as a Conservative councilor and cabinet member for communities.
When Priti Patel was serving as the Secretary of State for International Development, Alex Sawyer managed her office. However, she came under fire when it was revealed that she had paid him tens of thousands of pounds to do so.
Priti had utilized her staffing allocation to pay Alex up to $25,000 annually for part-time work from February 2014 until June 2017.
According to the register of MPs’ interests, Alex ceased working for Priti after the General Election in June 2017.
It was against the rules for politicians to hire personnel from “related” parties, according to the Independent Parliamentary Standards Authority.
As the regulations only applied to individuals hired after the 2017 General Election, Alex could have stayed on at Priti’s without any trouble.
