Edward Samuel Miliband is the Member of Parliament for Doncaster North since 2005, and leader of the British Labour Party, a position he has held since 2010.
Born to a human rights campaigner and CND member, Miliband spent his early years in London along with his older brother, David Miliband, who was the MP for South Shields between 2001 and 2013. Miliband started his career in the media as a researcher on the Channel 4 show 'A Week in Politics'. He was approached the following year by Harriet Harman, then Shadow Chief secretary to the Treasury, as her policy researcher and speechwriter.
Miliband first stood for election for Doncaster North in 2005, winning the safe Labour seat comfortably. In 2007 he was promoted to the Cabinet where he served alongside his brother, the first siblings to have served together in a British Cabinet since 1938.
After Gordon Brown resigned in May 2010, Miliband announced that he would stand as a candidate for the leadership of the Labour Party, a contest that he won, defeating his brother by 1.3%.
