Labour’s Khan Becomes First Muslim Mayor Of London After Bitter Campaign


Sadiq Khan, 45, the son of a bus driver, has won the election to become London’s first Muslim mayor today, seeing off a Conservative challenger, Zac Goldsmith, 41, the son of a billionaire financier, who attempted to link him to extremism. Khan secured a much-needed victory for his opposition Labour Party.

New York City Mayor Bill De Blasio said on Twitter: “Sending congratulations to London’s new mayor and fellow affordable housing advocate, @SadiqKhan.”

Khan’s margin of victory looked set to be narrower than expected, Reuters reports.



    • Your psychiatrist is calling you in for more simple testing? Seriously, this is a human experience. Expect the world to elect qualified muslims in any place that they live. We want democracy. Thanks.
