London Has a New Mayor

May 1, 2016
Real solutions beat false claims

Every four years, the people of London head to the polls to vote for who they want to be their next mayor. This year, it was a particularly heated election with candidate Zac Goldsmith of the Conservative Party claiming that his opponent Sadiq Khan of the Labour Party was associated with extremists . Those claims didn’t seem to fool Londoners though. It seemed like the people of London were more interested in housing and transportation, both issues that Sadiq Khan talked about and proposed solutions for. He also promised to be the Mayor of “all Londoners”, a mayor who will be helping and supporting everyone. These promises ultimately won over the people of London. Sadiq Khan is now the first Muslim Mayor of London.
