Lambeth's ray of light

Congratulations to Mark Harrison, elected as a Labour councillor for Princes ward in Kennington (Vauxhall constituency) on Thursday. Mark received 1,726 votes, or 41% of the vote, compared to the LibDem candidate who had 1,396.

The Tories did not get the surge for which they had hoped, receiving 707 votes. Turnout was almost 43%.

The by-election was fought under very difficult circumstances given the national situation but we were able to show that voters will support a Labour council that is actively implementing Labour values at a local level - and a candidate who has a record of standing up for residents. The election also showed that Labour is active on the ground running effective campaigns.
