With 2,170 more votes than 2010, Emily Brothers increased Labour’s share of the vote by 4.2% in Sutton & Cheam.
Ms Brothers said: “I look forward to campaigning across London to get Sadiq Khan elected as our next Mayor and secure more Assembly seats. It is only a Labour administration that can create economic growth, tackle the housing crisis, deliver more affordable and effective public transport, meet modern policing challenges and broker a better deal for Londoners.”
Sadiq Khan MP, Labour’s Mayoral Candidate, said: "I worked with Emily in the general election when she ran a good campaign - far exceeding all expectations. Emily is a conviction politician with real Labour values. She is a brave and strong person, whose experiences will make her an excellent candidate"
