London Mayoral Election: Sadiq Khan’s campaign

On 6 May, registered voters in London will have the opportunity to cast their vote for the Mayor of London and the 25 members of the London Assembly. There are 19 candidates challenging the incumbent mayor, Sadiq Khan. He is the first Muslim to hold this office and was elected in 2016 with 57% of the vote. His campaign site notes, “I’ve always stood up for Londoners’ liberal values. Before I was elected, I worked as a human rights lawyer and marched against the Iraq war. As an MP, I campaigned against the impact of austerity on London’s communities. And now as Mayor, I’m leading the fight against a hard Brexit, defending the rights of EU citizens in London, standing up to the anti-London Tory Government, and defending London’s openness, diversity and tolerance . . . .” click here.
