London reelects Sadiq Khan as mayor

Sadiq Khan has been reelected as the mayor of London in the 2021 United Kingdom local elections.

Commenting after his victory, the Labour mayor stated that he will "work for all Londoners," and hopes to bring the city to a "better and brighter future" making it "fairer, safer, and greener." Additionally, he added that when it comes to the pandemic he will work to "build bridges" between the government and city hall.

Khan won 1,206,034 first and second preference votes, edging out the 977,601 votes won by the Conservative Party candidate Shaun Bailey, a closer vote than analysts predicted and a smaller margin of victory for Khan when compared to the 2016 election.
