When did Sadiq Khan become the Mayor of London?

Sadiq Khan made history in 2016 when he was elected London's first Muslim mayor – the city where he was born and raised, after his parents moved to London from Pakistan in the 1960s.

As the mayor of London Khan has responsibilities covering policing, transport, housing, planning, economic development, arts, culture and the environment. 

Prior to this, between 2005 and 2016, he was MP for Tooting in South London, a role he quit when becoming mayor.

In the mayoral elections Khan won the largest number of votes in one election of any politician in British history.

He was once again re-elected for a second term as mayor in May 2021, defeating the Conservative candidate Shaun Bailey.

Discussing the capital and his career, Khan previously said: ''London gave me the opportunities to go from the council estate where I grew up to being Mayor of the greatest city on earth.

''I still wake up every morning passionate about delivering my promise to Londoners: to make London a fairer city where all Londoners get the opportunities that our city gave to me and my family.''
