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.
