We Demand the Resignation of All Remaining Tower Hamlets First Councillors
On 23rd April 2015 Lutfur Rahman was declared guilty by an election court of corrupt and illegal practices. The 2014 Mayoral election was declared void and a re-run ordered. Former Mayor Lutfur Rahman and former Cllr. Alibor Choudhury were immediately discharged from elected office.
Commissioner Richard Mawrey stated in his judgement: -
"the court will have to report that ‘corrupt practices have extensively prevailed at the election in the area of the authority for which the election was held.’ Given the nature of THF as a ‘party’ and the reality of its control by Mr Rahman, this means that the election of all THF Councillors must be taken to have been achieved with the benefit of the corrupt and illegal practices found by this judgment to have been committed".
All 17 remaining Tower Hamlet's First councillors were elected though corrupt and illegal practices. They are utterly disgraced. We demand their immediate resignation and the restoration of democracy in Tower Hamlets.
