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 and control of 20 out of 32 councils. 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. However, their share of the vote was only 37%, and they lost Tower Hamlets council to no overall control, with Tower Hamlets First winning 18 seats in the borough.

The Liberal Democrat vote collapsed, with the party losing more than half its vote share, losing 130 council seats and retaining control of just 1 council out of 32. The Conservatives lost 2 councils, 105 councillors and their popular vote share declined by 6%.

The election saw a record vote for parties outside of the 3 major parties, with UKIP, the Green Party, independents and other minor parties winning a collective 26% 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, but whilst UKIP went from 0 to 12 seats, the Greens did not repeat their 2006 success and only gained 2 seats across London, leaving them with 4, all of which were in inner London.

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.
