The battle for City Hall is on, with just six months until the next London mayoral election


It is exactly six months until Londoners go to the polls to elect their next Mayor. Who would you vote for if the election was today?

Has current Mayor Boris Johnson done enough in his four years at City Hall to convince you to give him another term?

Would Labour candidate Ken Livingstone getting a second stint as the city’s Mayor be good for London?

Or should someone completely new be given the chance to run the capital, such as Liberal Democrat hopeful Brian Paddick or Jenny Jones of the Green Party?

Take part in our poll to let us know who your choice would be if you were voting today.

Also, let us know in the comments box below what the main issues will be when you choose the best person to be London Mayor. Is it simply political allegiance or are their important London issues which will sway your vote?

Finally, for a bit of fun, would be your first task if you were in charge at City Hall? What would be on your to-do in your first day as Mayor? Email your thoughts to

The impending mayoral election will be one of the topics for discussion in London24’s live web chat this Friday from noon to 2pm.
