The candidates for next month’s council and mayoral elections have been announced.

Seats in all 20 of the Tower Hamlets wards, as well as the role of directly elected mayor, are up for grabs on Thursday, May 3.

Seven candidates will be contesting the mayoral seat - Conservative Anwara Ali, Labour’s John Biggs, Liberal Democrat Elaine Bagshaw and the Green Party’s Ciaran Jebb, as well as Aspire candidate Ohid Ahmed, People’s Alliance of Tower Hamlets candidate Rabina Khan and the Trade Unionist and Socialist Coalition’s Hugo Pierre.

In the wards, a total of 45 councillors will be elected.

Seven of the wards will have three councillors each, 11 will have two councillors and two of the wards - Limehouse and Poplar - will return just one each.

The result of the election is due to be announced the following day, on Friday, May 4. Those eligible to vote will receive a polling card through their letterbox in the coming weeks.
