LCCI will be following with particular interest the progress of two candidates in the run up to May’s London mayoral election as Natalie Campbell MBE and Tarun Ghulati have thrown their hats into the ring.

Campbell, chancellor of the University of Westminster, a Chamber patron member is running as a “centrist middle-of-the-road candidate” and has promised to survey 100,000 Londoners on what matters to them.

Ghulati, president and chief executive of Squared Watermelon Limited, is a former deputy chair of LCCI’s Asian Business Association. He recently participated in a Chamber mission to India, in conjunction with the India Startup Foundation which he co-founded.
Both are running as independent candidates. Also in the race at this stage are Rob Blackie (Liberal Democrats), Howard Cox (Reform UK), Zoe Garbett (Greens), Susan Hall (Conservatives), and Sadiq Khan (Labour).
