The London mayoral election seems to be nearer than anticipated, as Labour brace for a decent end. Londoners throughout town voted for their favorite candidates on Thursday May 6, with the ultimate end result anticipated this weekend.
Labour’s Sadiq Khan – the previous MP for Tooting – has been the mayor of London for the previous 5 years.
He’s bidding for one other 4 years in cost, and is narrowly forward within the race.
Khan was anticipated to utterly wipe the ground with the opposite candidates, however the Conservatives’ Shaun Bailey has drawn extra votes than anticipated.
Bailey has already gained in each Ealing and Hillingdon, and Brent and Harrow – each of which had been beneath Labour management 5 years in the past.
But, we cannot know for positive who’s gained the keys to City Hall till a minimum of Saturday evening – probably from 8.30pm.
Vote counting has been taking longer this 12 months to cater for Covid restrictions.
