5 May 2016. Curriculum for Cohesion’s Lead Patron since 2012, the Rt. Hon. Sadiq Khan, who was the Labour Party candidate, has been elected the third Mayor of London, winning 44.2% of the first round vote and 56.9% of the second round vote. His nearest rival was the Conservative Party candidate Zac Goldsmith. Sadiq is accredited with running a highly effective campaign with clear and consistent messages that appealed to a broad cross-section of Londoners.
He is the first Muslim mayor of a major European capital and true to authentic Islam and, indeed, Curriculum for Cohesion’s mission, is determined to bring success and prosperity to all Londoners. Sadiq has said “I want all Londoners to have the same opportunities that our city gave me: a home they can afford, a high-skilled job with decent pay, an affordable and modern transport system and a safe, clean and healthy environment.”
The whole Curriculum for Cohesion team is incredibly proud of you, Sadiq. We ask that God guides you in wisdom and justice with this great Trust that He has given you. Amin.
