The Conservative Assembly Member Brian Coleman has today been elected Chairman of the London Assembly at the Assembly’s Annual Meeting.
Mr Coleman, who previously served as Chairman in 2004/05, was elected to the Assembly in the first GLA elections held in May 2000 and was re-elected in 2004.
Describing his election as a “privilege” Coleman said the “Assembly has a busy year ahead.”
“I do look forward to reminding Londoners constantly that there are 25 politicians, other than the Mayor in this building, all doing a valuable job on behalf of the capital.”
The Liberal Democrat Peer Baroness Sally Hamwee was appointed as the Assembly’s Deputy Chair.
