Housing boss and deputy mayor Cllr Philip Glanville has been named as Labour’s candidate for the mayoral by-election, which will take place next month.
The Hoxton politician saw off competition from parks and leisure boss Cllr Jonathan McShane, Cllr Jon Burke and children’s chief Cllr Antoinette Bramble to win the vote of party members on Thursday.
Jules Pipe resigned as mayor when he was appointed as Sadiq Khan’s planning boss.
Cllr Glanville took to Twitter as the results were announced to thank those voting for him.
Nominations for candidates for the vacancy close at 4pm on August 18.
Anyone who is not already registered to vote, or who has moved home since the European Union referendum, should visit gov.uk/regsiter-to-vote before 30 August.
Postal vote applications must be received by the Council by 5pm on 31 August.
