According to Khan’s electoral website, his prophesy for London “is a elementary one – we wish all Londoners to have a same opportunities that the city gave me: a home they can afford, a high-skilled pursuit with decent pay, an affordable and complicated ride complement and a safe, purify and healthy environment.”
After a nasty campaign, dual surveys on Wednesday gave Khan a lead of adult to 14 points over Zac Goldsmith, his multimillionaire opposition from Prime Minister David Cameron’s Conservative party.
