London Mayoral Election – Postponed

It has been announced today (13 March 2020) that the elections for the London Mayor and the London Assembly together with other local elections within England have been postponed for a year until May 2021. The BBC have reported that the Cabinet Office will be bringing forward legislation to enact the delay in England. This is as a result of COVID-19.

This means that Sadiq Khan will continue as London Mayor for a further year, giving him the opportunity to personally oversee the changes to the Low Emission Zone scheduled for October 2020.
