2017 City of London Corporation election
The 2017 City of London Corporation election took place on 23 March 2017 to elect members of the Court of Common Council in the City of London Corporation. The election was the first time apart from a 2014 by-election that partisan candidates were elected to the body. Fifteen of the hundred seats on the council were won by political parties: the newly created Temple & Farringdon Together party and the Labour Party.
100 seats to the Court of Common Council
51 seats needed for a majority
Results by ward. Red represents Labour. Blue represents Temple & Farringdon Together. Grey represents Independents. Wards coloured dark grey did not hold contests.
The elections attracted media attention as they represented a high point in the City of London for Labour, who until the 2017 election had only ever won a single seat in a 2014 by-election for Portsoken ward.
26 councillors were elected unopposed: twenty-five independents and one Labour.
