Labour Mayor of Newham Rokhsana Fiaz won a second consecutive term in the east London borough with 35,696 votes.
Cllr Fiaz eclipsed her rivals gaining more votes than the other six candidates combined with 56% of the vote.
Turnout in the ballot was unusually low, with just 28% of the electorate voting – 10% less than the last election in 2018.
Labour’s Sir Robin Wales was the first mayor of Newham and won five consecutive terms, serving from 2002 to 2018.
Cllr Fiaz successfully challenged Sir Robin for the Labour candidacy in 2018 - after first being elected a councillor in 2014 - and was elected later that year.
Results for Newham Council are yet to be announced, but we expect to see a landslide win for Labour
There is the possibility of Labour winning every council seat in the borough for the third time in a row.
During the campaign, Cllr Fiaz said she wanted to improve housing and community engagement in the next term, among other issues.
She added: “I want our residents to have a real stake in our borough’s future, be at the heart of everything we do and deliver fairness during these tough times with a radical Labour agenda.”
