The Info List - London Local Elections, 2014


--- Advertisement ---



There were local government elections in London
London
on Thursday 22 May 2014. All councillor seats on the 32 London
London
borough councils were up for election. The electorates of Hackney, Lewisham, Newham and Tower Hamlets also elected their executive mayors, who operate in place of council leaders in those boroughs. Ward changes took place in Hackney, Kensington and Chelsea, and Tower Hamlets, which reduced the total number of councillors by 10 to 1,851. Both the mayoral and councillor elections are four-yearly. The results saw the Labour Party achieve their best result in over 40 years, winning 1,060 councillors, control of 20 out of 32 councils and 43% of the popular vote (their highest since 1971). Only the elections of 1964, 1971 and 1974 have seen Labour win more than 1,060 council seats in London, and Labour has not controlled 20 councils or more since 1971. The Conservatives dropped to their lowest-ever percentage of the vote in a London
London
local election, at just 29.9%, and fell to their lowest councillor total since 1998. The Liberal Democrat vote halved, with the party dropping to 10% of the popular vote and 116 seats (down 130), the worst result for the Lib Dems or the Liberals for 36 years. The election saw a record vote for parties outside the 3 major parties, with UKIP, the Green Party, independents and other minor parties winning a collective 17% of the vote, the highest since the creation of the London
London
Boroughs in 1964. 63 minor party or independent councillors were elected in total. UKIP and the Greens saw their best-ever results in terms of vote share (7% for the Greens and 5% for UKIP), but whilst UKIP gained 12 seats, the Greens gained just 2. Following the elections, two of the thirty two London
London
borough councils were in no overall control, a decrease of one. All four mayoral elections returned the incumbent mayors: 3 Labour and 1 Tower Hamlets First.
