Conservative MP, Boris Johnson has been voted in as London’s mayor for another term lasting four years.
By no means did Johnson win by a landslide and in a close contest only just beat his Labour opponent Ken Livingstone, who held the job from 2000 to 2008.
The polling stations opened early Thursday and until late that night Londoners voted throughout the capital and awaited the results the following evening.
Ken Livingstone later congratulated Johnson and added he thought Johnson would be an ideal leader of the Conservative party, and possibly a good candidate as the next prime minister.
He will not run for London’s mayor again.
