Jenny Jones to be Green Candidate for London Mayor

Three-term London Assembly Member Jenny Jones has been selected as the Green Party’s candidate for Mayor of London.

In a ballot of London party members, Jones received 458, or 66%, of the 1st preference votes.
Shahrar Ali, parliamentary candidate for Brent Central last year, took 133 1st preference votes (19%), and Farid Bakht, who ran in Bethnal Green & Bow, was the first choice of 90 members (13%).

Six members voted to re-open nominations, and two papers were spoiled, out of a total of 689 ballots received.

All three candidates are also seeking nomination as London-wide members of the Assembly
