JOSEPH Ejiofor has been elected to be the new leader of Haringey Council prior to being elected leader of the local Labour group.
Joseph has replaced Claire Kober who resigned due to a tension over a conflicting project known as the Haringey Development Vehicle (HDV). Claire’s administration had conflicted with members of Momentum concerning a £2bn deal with a private company to construct 6,500 homes.
Joseph Ejiofor will officially sworn in as leader on 24 May. Emine Ibrahim was also elected to be Mr Ejiofor’s deputy.
