On 1 May 2008 elections will be held for the post of London Mayor (currently held by Lambeth’s most famous former resident Ken Livingstone) and also the Greater London Authority which acts as the legislature holding the Mayor to account for decisions made. These elections are especially important for cyclists as the Mayor has direct control over Transport for London which is responsible for all the major roads in the borough and for promoting cycling and other forms of sustainable transport London-wide.
Further information on the London election, including a list of candidates when nominations have closed, is available at http://www.londonelects.com
