THE CAMDEN Labour party has selected Nasim Ali to lead the group forward in next year's local elections.
Mr Ali, who is known as Nash, replaces outgoing leader Cllr Anna Stewart, who is stepping down in 2010.
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.
