Abstract
The article deals with the new event in the history of London. In May 2016 Sadiq Khan, Muslim of Pakistani origin has become the Lord Mayor of London.In recent decades London increasingly reflects the composition of the population of former British colonies. As the capital of the former metropolis, London is a magnet for immigrants from South Asia, Africa, the West Indies, Malaysia, Hong Kong. As the commercial and financial center as well as a relatively quiet city, London has attracted the Arabs, Greeks, Turks, Russian and representatives of other nations. Probably, London is the most cosmopolitan of all the European capitals.Sadiq Khan is a Labor Member of Parliament, and former State Minister of Transport of the Prime- Minister Gordon Brown. He is the first Mayor of Muslim and Pakistani origin in London. The article traces origins of Sadiq Khan and reasons for his election as Lord Mayor.
