The chair of London Councils and leader of Haringey LBC has fought off a challenge from Labour activists to keep her council seat.

Cllr Claire Kober tweeted her thanks to Labour members in Seven Sisters last night after surviving the coup. She won her reselection vote by 64 votes to 19.

She tweeted: ‘Enormous thanks to Labour members in Seven Sisters who have re-selected me to be their council candidate.’

Cllr Kober, who has led Haringey for nine years, faced opposition from the left of the party following the council’s regeneration programme. Under the Haringey Development Vehicle, the council will transfer £2bn assets to a public private partnership with Lendlease.
