Ribeiro-Addy praised the party for giving women and black and Asian candidates the opportunity in safe seats.
She told BuzzFeed News: “Part of the problem is that some of these parties are running diverse candidates but they’re not necessarily running them in seats that they can win and that becomes an issue.
She explained: “The way to increase diversity is to look at the channels through which people usually become members of Parliament and to look at diversifying them.
As it stands, the Conservatives welcomed three additional black, Asian, and minority ethnic group MPs to its ranks making a total of 22 BAME MPs in Britain’s largest party.
The 80-seat majority gain means the proportion of those from an ethnic background has remained at 6%, with just a quarter of Conservative party MPs being women.
