Newham has had a Labour council since its inception in 1964, and since 2002 Sir Robin Wales has been at its’ helm.

At least one thing is certain to change in this election, with Labour’s Rokhsana Fiaz, former Custom House councillor, in the running for mayor.

Follow the blog to see how she fares, along with the rest of the councillors and mayoral candidates.
