The London mayoral vote appears to be closer than anticipated, as Labour brace for a tight close. Londoners across the city voted for their favourite candidates on Thursday May 6, with the definitive result expected this weekend.
Labour’s Sadiq Khan – the late MP for Tooting – has been the mayor of London for the past five years.
He’s command for another four years in charge, and is narrowly ahead in the race.
Khan was wait for to completely wipe the floor with the other candidates, but the Conservatives’ Shaun Bailey has fatigued more votes than anticipated.
Bailey has already won in both Ealing and Hillingdon, and Brent and Harrow – both of which were underneath Labour control five years ago.
But, we won’t know for sure who’s won the keys to Urban district Hall until at least Saturday night – possibly from 8.30pm.
Franchise counting has been taking longer this year to cater for Covid restrictions.
