HeadlineMay 09, 2016

In London, Sadiq Khan has become the city’s first Muslim mayor. He celebrated the election results after being sworn in on Saturday.

Mayor Sadiq Khan: “I think we should be really proud. We should be really proud that, you know, record numbers came out and voted on Thursday. Record numbers, in my view, voted for hope over fear, and unity over division. And what I’m hoping today’s ceremony has shown is, you know, I believe in bringing people together, uniting our city and making sure we grapple with the problems facing our city in a positive way.”
