It was announced today that Zac Goldsmith, MP for Richmond, will represent the Conservative Party in the London Mayoral Election of 2016.
Mr Goldsmith – well known for his campaigns on environmental issues – said that he was honoured to have received his party’s support, and that he will work hard to make London a greener city. He made clear, however, that the housing issue will be his number one priority.
Alok Sharma MP, Co-Chairman of Conservative Friends of India, said about the nomination: “Many congratulations to Zac on his selection, he will be a truly fantastic Mayor for London. Boris Johnson has been brilliant for London and Conservative Friends of India look forward to working with Zac’s campaign team for his election to make sure London continues to have an outstanding Mayor.”
