In 2024, the London Mayoral Elections will take place seeing hopeful candidates bid to become Mayor of London.

The last election took place in May 2021 and saw Labour's Sadiq Khan become Mayor of London for his second term.

Khan first took on the role in 2016 after he succeeded former Prime Minster Boris Johnson who took over from Ken Livingstone in 2008.

The role of London Mayor does not have a maximum term and could see Mayors stay in the role for several terms.

Mayor Khan has been in the role for two terms and if he were to win the 2024 elections he could become the longest-serving Mayor of London.

When are the 2024 London Mayoral Elections?

The elections will confirm who will take on the role of Mayor for the next term as well as the members of the London Assembly.
