Centrists have won out over the left-wing of party, as Labour chose candidates for the London Assembly elections.

Voting among party members wound up on Wednesday, with most results announced yesterday (Thursday).

The London Assembly elections are on May 7, at the same time as the Mayoral vote.

There are two ballot papers – one for a local representative in each of London’s 14 Assembly constituencies, and one for the 11 pan-London members.

For the first time in this election, Labour had full mandatory reselection for list candidates – meaning sitting Assembly members had to fight for their place on the ballot as much as anyone else.

In the event, no current pan-London Labour assembly members are standing for re-election.

Nicky Gavron and Fiona Twycross are standing down, and Tom Copley dropped his bid when Sadiq Khan appointed him Deputy Mayor for Housing.

Labour members were also picking candidates for several constituencies currently held by Conservatives, or where the Labour representative is stepping down.

These local candidates will join current Assembly members Leonie Cooper, Unmesh Desai, Len Duvall and Onkar Sahota, who are all standing for re-election.

The results of the Assembly selection provide a litmus test of the party membership’s attitudes in the capital, ahead of the national leadership vote.

But only members who had signed up to Labour by September 2018 could vote – meaning that, unlike in the national leadership contest, those who have joined in the wake of the party’s General Election defeat could not take part.

Voting on the next Labour leader begins next week, with Rebecca Long-Bailey, Lisa Nandy and Keir Starmer going head-to-head.

Holborn & St Pancras MP Mr Starmer has won the most endorsements from local Labour Party branches in the capital, with 44 supporting him ahead of Ms Long-Bailey on 19 and Ms Nandy on nine.

Despite serving as shadow Brexit Secretary under Jeremy Corbyn, Mr Starmer is considered a more centrist option than Momentum-backed Ms Long-Bailey.

But the results of the London Assembly voting suggest a tight contest between left and centre-leaning members in the city.

There were successes for centrist candidates backed by Corbyn-sceptic Labour First in constituencies, while the Momentum slate dominated in the pan-London selection.

Barnet and Camden

Momentum-endorsed Faduma Hassan won the most first-preference votes from Labour members in this safe seat.

But with Young Labour chair Miriam Mirwitch and Holborn activist Sagal Abdi-Wali knocked out of the running, it was Barnet councillor Anne Clarke who won the selection with second-preference transfers.

All the candidates running against Ms Hassan were endorsed by Labour First, making this result a victory for the centre left.

Bexley and Bromley

Labour will be fighting against a new Conservative candidate to turn this blue seat red, after current assembly member Gareth Bacon was elected to Parliament.

Labour First candidate Stefano Borella beat unendorsed Sunny Lambe to represent the seat – with Momentum not backing any candidates.

Brent and Harrow

Brent councillor Krupesh Hirani – backed by Labour First and outgoing assembly member Navin Shah – beat Momentum’s pick, NHS worker Aghileh Djafari-Marbini.

Mr Hirani won by a wafer thin margin of just five votes – 624 to Ms Djafari-Marbini’s 619.

Croydon and Sutton

South London gave Momentum a win, as Labour members backed Croydon councillor Patsy Cummings over Labour First endorsed Rowenna Davis by 25 votes.

This seat is currently represented by Conservative Steve O’Connell, but Ms Cummings will take on a new candidate in the May election.

Havering and Redbridge

Labour First backed every candidate standing against Momentum’s Bob Littlewood – and it was Redbridge councillor Judith Garfield who won the nomination.

The Labour target seat is currently held by Conservative Keith Prince – but with less than 1,500 votes separating the parties at the last election, it’s sure to be hotly contested.

Lambeth and Southwark

Bromley councillor Marina Ahmad won the selection for this Labour safe seat – the Labour First preferred candidate beat off competition from Taranjit Chana, Shahina Jaffer, and Momentum pick Maurice McLeod

Hackney, Islington and Waltham Forest

Sem Moema, advisor to Hackney Mayor Philip Glanville, was selected in this north east safe seat.

She beat Islington councillor Sara Hyde, who was backed by current assembly member Jeanette Arnold, as well as Momentum-endorsed Emine Ibrahim.

Hounslow, Kingston and Richmond

The south west constituency has yet to announce the results of the head-to-head vote between Candice Atterton and Sandra Keen.

Neither is Momentum endorsed, and Labour First has recommended both candidates.

The winner will take on a new Conservative candidate, as current Assembly member Tony Arbour is stepping down.

Hammersmith & Fulham, Kensington & Chelsea and Westminster

Labour First backed Rita Begum, a Westminster councillor, beat unendorsed Sophie Charman-Blower.

She will be vying to unseat current Conservative assembly member Tony Devenish in the May election.

London-wide List

More success for Momentum on the pan-London list – the membership’s top two picks – union organiser Elly Baker and Lewisham councillor Sakina Sheikh were both backed by the grassroots movement.

The next two candidates, Marina Ahmad and See Moema, were already selected as constituency candidates, so were withdrawn from the list.

This means third pick, activist and author Liam Young, is also Momentum endorsed.

And Haringey councillor and London bus driver Preston Tabois, who came sixth, will also appear on the four-person list for Momentum.
