Topic - Hackney London Borough Council

Hackney London Borough Council is the local authority for the London Borough of Hackney in Greater London, England. It is a London borough council, one of 32 in the United Kingdom capital of London. The council is unusual in the United Kingdom local government system in that its executive function is controlled by a directly elected mayor of Hackney, currently Jules Pipe. Hackney is divided into 19 wards, each electing three councillors. Following the May 2010 election, Hackney London Borough Council comprises 50 Labour Party councillors, four Conservative Party councillors and three Liberal Democrat councillors. The council was created by the London Government Act 1963 and replaced three local authorities: Hackney Metropolitan Borough Council, Shoreditch Metropolitan Borough Council and Stoke Newington Metropolitan Borough Council. - Source: Wikipedia
