Tooting MP Sadiq Khan is Labour’s candidate for Mayor

Tooting MP Sadiq Khan has been selected as Labour’s candidate for Mayor of London.

He said “I will repay the faith so many have placed in me today. I will devote all my energies in our campaign to win back City Hall – winning for a purpose.

“I will stand by the values so many of us share – fairness, ambition and opportunity.

“Together we can make a difference. Together we can fight for all Londoners. Together we can win. Together we can change London.”

He said his priorities, if elected, were housing, low pay, making London the best city in the world to start and run a business, limiting public transport fare increases and opposing a new runway at Heathrow.

Our special edition of Wandsworth Tonight Extra starts tonight at 6pm with Eliza Phillips. We’ll be discussing what this means for Mr Khan and his constituents in Tooting.
