He said: "I want a positive vision for Camden Labour. I am proud to be part of a Labour movement that nurtured excellent schools, established affordable childcare for the first time and supported the best and most vibrant voluntary sector in London."
Mr Ali, 40, is a former Mayor of Camden and grew up on the Regent's Park Estate in Camden Town. He helped pioneer the Camden United Football project to bring local young people from white and Asian communities together in the south of the borough.
