The London Assembly is to carry out a review of the recent elections in London.
Turnout was high in the Capital for a day which combined the general election with votes for London's local authorities. Results were mixed and most parties - except the BNP - had something to celebrate. However it appeared that not every borough was prepared for the large voter demand, especially at the end of the day.
There were stories around London of voters lining up to form queues and some of these people were too late to cast their ballot.
There are also some cases of alleged voting fraud, with police called in to investigate the accuracy of the electoral register in some wards.
The Assembly review will focus on the administration of the process rather than the politics. Details will be worked out by the business management committee but we intend to ensure that London is fully prepared for a high turnout in 2012, when Boris Johnson will face a challenge from Labour's candidate against a backdrop of potential protest voting against a Liberal Conservative government wrestling with difficult choices.
I proposed the review at the Assembly Meeting on Wednesday morning and I was delighted that it received unanimous cross party support.
