Sadiq Khan was re-elected Mayor of London

Labor politician Khan won 55.2 percent of the vote against Conservative Party’s Torres candidate Sean Bailey’s 44.8 percent, winning by a slightly smaller margin than last time.

This is Khan’s second installment As a leader with a population of over nine million in the British capital. He took office in 2016 after current Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

– I am humbled by the trust I have received from the people of London to lead the best city on earth. “I promise I will do everything I can to create a better and brighter future for London after the darkness of the epidemic,” Khan said after being declared the winner on Saturday night.

He writes on Twitter He “will turn every stone to bring the city back under its feet.”

London mayoral election It was one of the regional and local elections held in the UK on Thursday. Khan was expected to be allowed to stay, but generally a consolation to Labor after weak results.

One of the elections on Thursday will be a by-election to the National Parliament, where the resigned member will be replaced. The Hartlbull constituency, which had been a Labor stronghold from the beginning, was won by the Tory candidate, a significant victory in recognition of Prime Minister Boris Johnson.

Labor leader Khair Stormer Now the party’s vice president, Angela Rainer, has been fired as campaign manager BBC. The local elections were an opportunity for the party to show its recovery from the national catastrophic elections of 2019, but rather the party’s retreat in many parts of the UK. Labor, however, remains the largest party in parliament in Wales and retains its mayoral post.

Along with the Greens, there are still a majority who want a new referendum on independence from Britain, which Johnson vehemently opposed.
